Maker's bio

I've been interested in plants and knitting for many years and combining the two was a natural process! I now have a dye garden on my allotment and enjoy exploring what colours can be achieved from various plants.

Sheila reviewed: Natural dyeing workshop - 'Local Colour' - Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex

"I attended this day course with a friend. We had a really enjoyable day. The tutors were friendly, knowledgeable and informative. The other students were great fun. We dyed wool using readily obtainable items such as onion skins and dried daffodil flowers, we were given information about dyes, mordents and shade cards and we were able to experiment with our own mixture of colours toward the end of the day. We were provided with tea, coffee and lovely cakes and we were able to take home 4 skeins of wool dyed in 4 different shades. There was wool available to purchase, also ready made items e,g, cushions. We were treated to a tour around the flower farm which was very interesting. A thoroughly lovely day. Would highly recommend."

S. Loten reviewed: Natural dyeing workshop - 'Local Colour' - Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex

"Ruth & Vicky should be very pleased with their first wool dyeing workshop. For me I feel they have given me enough knowledge & confidence to try it at home. The whole 5hrs were great fun with a lovely group of like minded craft ladies. Highly recommend it if you are looking to learn a new skill. "
