Event description

Description

This three-hour workshop explores the act of naturally dyeing different hand spun fibres, covering all the skills and tools you need to know to begin colouring your own yarn and fabric at home.

Jessie Mason and Jordan (SALT Textiles) will introduce types of wool and cotton, exploring their journey from seedling to fabric. They'll share how to source natural dye matter and mordents, and you'll be given knowledge about natural fibres/fabrics and the basic equipment you’ll need.

Guided by Jessie, you'll be led through the stages of wool carding, spinning and mordanting in readiness for dyeing. With handspinning demos and further insight in the best fibres to choose and how to plan for your own projects.

With Jordan you'll gain a practical insight into the slow processes involved in making your own dyes from plant and food waste, experiencing first-hand how slow methods of making sit in relation to our fast-fabric culture today.

All guests will receive plenty of one-to-one teaching and will be provided with small skeins of hand spun wool, organic cotton and linen to dye with during the session.

All materials and equipment will be provided, you just need to bring yourself. There will also be a small bounty of snacks.

The workshop is open to all levels.
