Dyeing with Natural dyes

X

Description

Connect with me online via Zoom, Facetime or Skype and discuss the basics of Dyeing with Natural Dyes.
You'll learn enough from me to get you going. I can send you basic materials and discuss equipment required as well as how to forage for you own plants materials.

You'll learn which plants are good for dyeing on wool giving good strong colours and which aren't as good.

We can arrange a second session to discuss how you got on experimenting on your own.

Natural Dyeing is fun, creative and magical!

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

What's included in the price?

I'll give you plenty of information and email useful documents and contacts as well as suppliers.
You'll also be able to see what I've achieved with natural dyes and what I've made.

If you've been to one of my workshops before please will you leave a review.

What you will need

A computer or mobile with internet connection. I'll email you the Zoom connection details or phone you on Facetime or Skype.
I can help you to get connected prior to the beginning of the session for which there will be no charge, so we can test it out.

In-person course
Denise - - #26418

A lovely day spent learning introductory methods and techniques for tapestry weaving in a relaxed and friendly environment. Fiona is very knowledgeable and experienced in her craft, immediately putting me, the novice learner, at ease! Along with teaching the basics she gave lots of useful tips and suggestions on how to develop further skills, plus advice on equipment, books and relevant places to visit for inspiration. There were lots of examples of her own work to show what can be achieved using wool and textiles. And the food was delicious! Highly recommended.

Response from Shropshire Weavers:

Thanks Denise. It was lovely to meet you and get you started on your weaving journey. I look forward to seeing you again and showing you more weaving techniques. Let's hope you get a loom for Christmas! Happy Weaving. Best Wishes. Fiona

I really enjoyed the day. Fiona was good at giving the right amount of guidance and encouragement to get me going with my first weaving project. Knowledgeable and experienced and interested in my ideas. Very hospitable too. Thanks

Response from Shropshire Weavers:

Thanks Helen. I'm so glad you enjoyed your day and look forward to seeing you again. Enjoy your weaving and let me know if you any help or advice. Please send me a picture of your finished piece or post it on my Shropshire Weavers Facebook page. Best Wishes Fiona

Two wonderful days in Fiona's Studio dyeing wool, cotton and fleece with weld and oak (both picked fresh from her garden!), goldenrod, madder, logwood and more. Fiona is a superb teacher - very welcoming and knowledgeable, and her homemade scones and soup were delicious. Recommended if you want to learn the process of dyeing using plants from scratch.

Response from Shropshire Weavers:

I'm so glad you enjoyed your day with your sister. Thanks for the review. Look forward to seeing you both again next year for Dyeing with Indigo. I hope your Mum liked her little handspun silk Hank dyed with Indigo. Happy Dyeing! Warm wishes Fiona

I really enjoyed the 1 day introduction course, my piece of work I created from this event is on my wall! I have now booked for the 2nd day. The course teaches you the basics for weaving and provides you with the confidence to try new methods and materials. Fiona is a very knowledgeable tapestry weaver. I can recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn tapestry weaving. Great lunch too.

Response from Shropshire Weavers:

Thanks Jackie. So glad you enjoyed it. It was lovely to meet you and Barbara. Look forward to seeing you both again in October.
