In person…

GROWING COLOUR...    

Date - can be arranged to suit....   

10am-4pm

dyeing with plants is not a science... the colour obtain can vary greatly and be depend on many factors... the time of year a plant is picked... the growing conditions... the water... the mordants... the method used to extract the dye... as well as the type of fibre used...  so each and every time you use plant dyes the results you obtain have the potential to be different...  fibres dyed with plant dyes are not always colourfast... over time the colour can change too... but for me all these variants and possibilities make dyeing with plant dyes so exciting...

  • a range of plants will be used during this workshop... the colours... shades... & hues linen-wrap-001obtain will be different...
  • the day will start with a walk through the garden/wood gathering plants...
  • once the vats of colour are simmering away... we will talk about the different types of fibres & mordants available...
  • then it will be time to add you fibre to the dye pots...
  • you will end the day with a selection of plant dyed natural fibres to use in your own projects and a wonderful Linen Wrap...
