Natural Dyeing Workshop

We hosted a natural dyeing workshop at the weekend with the lovely Jules. For 3 hours we devoured every ounce of information and oohed and ahhed over the colours produced from plants.

The above fibres were dyed in chlorophyll.

Jules brought an array of yarns dyed from various plants to tempt us. Aren't they pretty?!

Jules talked us through the process of making dye baths and the importance of mordanting.

And above are the fruits of our labour!

We hope to have Jules back in the new year for more classes. Watch this space!
