Back to Spinning, weaving & dyeing courses
Dyeing courses, classes and workshops taught all across the UK. Dyeing is the age old process of adding colour to all types of textiles. Dyes can be natural, such as the orangey-red 'ochre' found in clay or onion skins, or man-made. One of the most abundant sources of dye is the plant kingdom. Roots, berries, bark, leaves and wood can all be used. Learning how to be creative with colours and fabric is a timeless and enjoyable skill. As a textile artist, it will open doors onto new realms of possibility! Would you like to learn how to dye fabric? Perhaps you have a dress or pair of trousers that needs a new lease of life? Come and join a dyeing course, workshop or group and open your eyes to the world of colour out there!
