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.
