What's included in the price
We start the day at 09.30am with tea & coffee. The first 15 minutes of each workshop is reserved to understanding the workshop Health and Safety requirements. Our workshops aim to finish at 16.30 hours with a half hour for lunch. All equipment and materials you need are provided. This includes all the yarn you need to learn natural dyeing, gloves and an apron. A notebook is also included for you to start your own Dye Reference record. By providing all you need, we hope that it will help you concentrate on the workshop and learn as much as you can. After the Health and Safety requirements there will be an introduction to the techniques and methods of natural dyeing, how to prepare cellulose fibres for dyeing, resist techniques and the vibrant colours that can be achieved with professional natural dye extracts. Using a variety of sizes of fabrics, handkerchiefs, napkins, scarves and shawls, you will learn the different ways natural dyes can be applied to yarn to create striking effects. You will take away a variety of sizes of fabrics in a range of natural colours together with a Course Handout summarising what you have learned during the day.
