Natural and sustainable yarn dyeing 2 days



This one day workshop will focus on natural dyeing using a range of sustainable materials found in Loch Ness woodlands and Café waste. Suitable for all levels of experience from beginners to those familiar with yarn dyeing.

We start the day with some easy natural dyeing using locally sourced ingredients. Following this the workshop offers a unique opportunity to forage for dye materials in either SSSI, ancient woodland or new woodland near Loch Ness. Followed by a visit to a local cafe for lunch. We then return to site to learn more about preparing the materials and recap on methods used in the morning.

This course is run entirely outside no matter what the weather, so please dress appropriately for a Scottish summer and foraging in woodlands.

You will leave this workshop with at least 5 mini skeins of naturally dyed yarn. Vegan yarn (cotton, linen, hemp) can be provided on request.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

Lunch is provided, please make the organiser aware of any special dietary requirements when booking.
