Whether you are a knitter or weaver wanting to create your own coloured yarn or an embroiderer interested in stitching with hand dyed wool, this workshop presents the perfect opportunity to learn about natural dyeing methods.
Textiles designer and hand weaver Rebecca Connolly guides you through the process of extracting dye from a wide range of dyestuffs which may include flowers, berries, leaves, tree bark, dried plants and concentrated plant extract. You will also learn how to prepare and mordant wool as well as making and using dye and modifier baths to enhance and transform natural colours.
You will take home colour samples and three mini skeins of wool yarn dyed with colours you have created.
