Natural Dyes Workshop

This workshop will introduce participants to the rewarding colours achieved from natural dyeing. We will be using dyestuffs found in abundance in hedgerows, vegetable patches and kitchen cupboards. These will include nettles, blackberries, red and golden onion skins and red cabbage. We will also spend time discovering colours from barks from across the globe. We will be using Irish linen from Flaxmill Textiles to colour. Each participant can learn some hand stitching techniques using linen thread to patchwork together their colour samples. 


Please bring an apron or old clothes, a notepad to record your colour recipes and a camera.
