Botanical Alchemy Workshop

Learn to dye your own yarn/thread with completely natural, non-toxic plant dyes from your own kitchen, garden, and the roadside. This workshop will focus on protein-based yarns, including wool and silk (cellulose-based fibres such as cotton and linen are prepared quite differently from protein fibres and could be the subject of a subsequent workshop). Each student will take home mini-skeins in a range of colours produced in the workshop, a dye record showing all of the key variables in achieving successful results that are light-fast and wash-fast, and the skills to further explore the magic of local plant colour.
