Natural Plant dye workshop

  • rhubarb root

This weekends dying workshop was a great experience of what we have to hand that can be used to dye a range of fabrics and wools with great effect.

Cutting through the theory of mordant and modifier and lots of hands on ( gloved of course ) practical dying.

A workshop like this takes great preparation time but the careful note keeping of all the students meant they were off to a good start.

Such a shame we only had a day and the dye bundles were taken home to ‘mature’ before being opened.

There will be a two day natural plant dye workshop with Ann Ross later in the Summer – look in the Scottish Feltmakers section.

All of the participants have a new respect for the plants that are around us and their potential.
