Natural Dyeing Summer Workshop

I’m hosting a natural dyeing workshop next month which will run for two days, 14th & 15th of July. This is suitable for anyone, experienced or not, spinner or not. We will be collecting our own plants and flowers with which to make the dyes.

We will learn how to prepare the wool with mordants, how to extract the colours from the dye materials, and how to make a dye bath and modify it. The work will be done at my studio and participants can also meet my sheep and see where it all begins. The goal is for everyone to dye 2 skeins of yarn which you can take home and create with. The hand spun wool will be provided so all you need to bring is a packed lunch each day and yourself.

I expect to have lots of fun and space will be limited to 3-4 students. Below are the details on time and cost but if you have any other questions and if you want to attend, you can contact me on this website or on Facebook at Meet the Wool. Hope to see you soon!

Where: Alder Cottage, Callura, Ballinruan, Clare
When: 14/15 July 10AM – 5PM
Fee: €135 includes all materials
