Welcoming a new group to the FelinFach Dye Studio for a two day course - 27th/28th July. Still a couples of places left.
Start your natural dyeing journey here! Learn how to hand dye protein fibres (animal fibres such as sheep wool, alpaca, yak and silk) or cellulose fibres (plant fibres such as cotton, linen, hemp and bamboo) using traditional natural dyes. Expert tuition in a professional, purpose designed dye studio environment.
The craft courses are a hands-on learning experience using ancient natural dyes such as Madder, Weld, and Cochineal, to name a few, in their natural form as well as extract. You will leave with the knowledge to successfully dye yarn and fabrics with lasting colour to use in your projects at home, using only natural dyes.
