Wildlearning - Natural dyeing using native plants
26 August 2019, 10:30 - 15:30 ( Add to calendar )
Spend a peaceful afternoon with local craftswoman Fay Jones in this wonderful ancient woodland learning about dyeing with natural plants.
Fay will show you a range of plants suitable for natural dyeing and you will use some of them to dye a selection of wool skeins to take home with you.
While the dye pots are simmering, you will learn different braiding techniques and enjoy refreshments in this lovely setting. Suitable for complete beginners.
Fay first learnt about dyeing when she was a Tudor re-enactor at Kentwell Hall. She has built up an eclectic knowledge of native dye plants and their identification.
