Discover the gorgeous colours from easy to grow plants & find out how to use them on different natural fibres and fabrics. We will learn about preparation of fibres, mordanting, modifying, solar dyeing and will include ancient dyes such as Madder, Weld & Indigo.
I will provide mordanted natural fleece from different breeds of sheep and you are welcome to bring small quantities of your own special yarn or fabric as well if you wish, please let me know when you book so that I can advise you on how to prepare it.
Please get in touch.
Bus 67 from Berwick upon Tweed, but please get in touch - I will need to meet you and flag the bus down as there isn't a stop very near.
