About the Course

NATURAL DYEING USING WOODLAND PLANTS

At Coppicewood College, Cilgerran.

This one day course is an introduction to natural dyeing using plants from the woods. We will start by exploring and collecting materials. Then we take them to the woodland workshop and dye samples on yarn, fleece and fabric. There will be explanations as we go along and notes to take home. A relaxed day out in a lovely setting. Please wear sensible shoes or boots.

Susan trained as a Textile Designer and has been teaching craft workshops on spinning and natural dyeing for the last 10 years. She mainly uses local dye materials that she collects or grows in her garden and locally grown fleece.

Such a unique experience in the most beautiful setting ! Had an absolutely fantastic day and came away with so much !
Susan is a great teacher with very clear instructions and the love of her craft clearly comes through. I take part in many craft courses as I like to try my hand at many things, but have to say - this was one of the best for sure.

Excellent course in a beautiful setting. Susan gives very clear instructions which are backed up with well-written handouts. Good to explore the woods for plant materials to be used in the dyeing session, this gives you ideas and the confidence for dyeing at home. I would recommend this course for anybody interested in natural dyeing, from beginners to the more experienced. Good fun!
