Seasonal Dyeing – Summer

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

£16 – £20

This is a short introduction to natural dyeing on wool with a more seasonal focus on locally available plants specific to the season. We’ll cover preparing the fibre, preparing and dyeing with natural dye baths and keeping records of dye experiments.  We’ll also look at gathering and storing natural dyestuffs which are in season.

Please note that this is an evening course.

All participants will receive samples of wool that we’ve dyed in the workshop.

There are 2 free tickets on this workshop for BPCG volunteers.  Please contact Kate on director@brockwellgreenhouses.org.uk if you would like one of these!

This workshop is run by Mette Lindahl-Wise, an indie dyer based in Herne Hill. She draws on the British approach to dyeing with natural materials as well as on the Scandinavian tradition which can be traced back to the Viking ages.
