Natural dyeing workshop - 'Local Colour' - Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex



This workshop is for people who are interested in exploring using plants to naturally dye wool - it is aimed at those starting out. It is held in the beautiful village of Hurstpierpoint, at the foot of the South Downs, at Pitfields Flower Farm in Hurstpierpoint. By the end of the day you will have learnt to dye skeins of wool using various easy to source plants and extracts, using readily available equipment. You will take home the wool you have dyed and the skills and knowledge to continue exploring this fascinating hobby at home. Tea/coffee/cake is included. Please bring your own lunch.
