Learn the hand dyeing process with natural dyes in the rural SA37 postcode area of Pembrokeshire near to the villages of Boncath and Crymych and the coastal towns of Newport and Cardigan in West Wales. These half day natural dyeing craft courses will introduce you to hand dyeing with botanical dyes using protein fibres – (animal fibres) wool, alpaca, yak, silk.
If you want to try Natural Dyeing to see if it’s right for you, need to refresh the basics or just don’t have the time to fit in a whole day, then our short Natural Dye sessions may be the answer.
The course is a shorter experience that allows you to 'dip your toe' in the water – or dye pot in this instance! It introduces you to the wonder of producing natural colours. They run for 3.5 hours (9.30am to 1.00pm) and take you through the basic stages of using Natural dyes and fibres. You will leave with quite a few samples that you have dyed yourself and possibly the bug to learn more!
