Learn a new skill, further your techniques, get creative, make something beautiful, enjoy a positive vibe, meet like minded people, appreciate plant based materials and forget lifes stresses!

I love all things to do with plants.... surrounding myself with plants, eating plants, making things with materials made from plants and using plant dyes. During this workshop we will be exploring the process used to dye a cellulose fibre, in this case, cotton. We will discuss various mordants and I will show you how to use them. After this, you will be making botanical dyes using items I have foraged for or plant based kitchen waste. From this we will use these dyes, as well as a range of premade dyes, to dye lengths of string that we will go on to create a wall hanging.

This workshop is for all abilities, anyone that wants be creative and spend time with a small group of likeminded people in an encouraging and positive atmosphere. We will be using British made quality unbleached cotton string and wooden hoops.

To celebrate all things plant based, a plant based lunch will be provided.

This 4.30 hr workshop will begin at 10.30 and complete at 2.30. Cost is 70.00.
