Introduction to Natural Dyeing
Wednesday 5th June
10am - 4pm
all day light lunch is included
At this workshop you will learn to prepare dye baths, be introduced to the use of mordents (which are chemicals used to fix the dyes and sometimes to change colours produced) and dye yarn samples. You will be dyeing 10g wool yarn samples which will be yours to take home at the end of the day, together with a Natural Dye Kit so that you can carry on with your dyeing experiments.
Only two places are offered on each workshop to ensure one to one tuition and maximum hands on experience. Bring apron and gloves.
