    Hands-On Practical Learning

    WE ONLY USE NATURAL DYE IN THESE WORKSHOPS AND IN ALL DYED PRODUCTS ON THIS WEBSITE.

    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 natural dyes. These natural dye 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.

    There is some 'theory' in these craft courses, but the emphasis is on practical learning. You will leave with the knowledge to successfully dye yarn and fabrics with lasting colour to use in your projects at home. You will also take away a complete Craft Course File of the theory and practical guidance you have received.
