The Wild Dyery
...is a textile design and training company founded by natural dyer, teacher and author of this online training, Justine Aldersey-Williams.
We pattern ethically sourced cloth by hand at our studio in Hoylake, Wirral, England, using traditional resist techniques including shibori, block printing and screen printing.
Our textiles are then dyed using flowers, bark, roots and leaves, imbuing the fabric with resonant colour and an ethical provenance.
We create a range of home textiles, ‘dye it yourself’ kits and accessories which sell online, at craft events and through retailers.
Our products, workshops and e courses aim to help preserve this heritage craft whilst promoting sustainable eco-textiles. We also showcase the work of other artists and makers using heritage, sustainable or upcycled materials and offer a variety of guest workshops in natural crafts.
