Description

Learn how to plant dye yarn in this hands-on workshop.

You’ll cover the first steps in dyeing your own yarn, using foraged plant materials and store cupboard ingredients. You’ll discuss the use of mordants to fix colours, scouring and the different colours that plants produce.

There will be lots of hands-on experience with plant dyes, using natural materials like ferns, willow, onion skins and more to create a range of stunning natural colours.

At the end of the day you’ll take home a few mini-skeins of plant dyed Welsh yarn.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

This course runs from 10am until 4pm and includes a delicious farm lunch and plenty of tea and coffee throughout the day.
We will provide all the materials and you'll take home a few mini-skeins of plant-dyed Welsh yarn.
