Live workshops take place at The Wild Dyery, Studio 6, 3 Wood St, Hoylake, Wirral, CH47 2DU which is 20 minutes by train from Liverpool in North West England.
- ReWild Your Wardrobe is ideal for complete beginners wishing to give their old clothes a new lease of life with colours hidden within household food waste.
- Core Skills in Natural Fabric Dyeing is for anyone interested in preserving the heritage of this ancient craft while considering the ecological benefits. You'll create a full spectrum of colours from the three most reliable plant dyes while developing tried and tested skills to enhance the longevity of your dyes. Ideal for those wishing to sell their work.
- Leaf : Print : Cloth combines reliable, heritage dyes with the serendipitous process of nature (or eco) printing foliage directly on to cloth and paper. You'll reconnect with your local flora by foraging for seasonal plants creating samples to be stitched in to a memory apron.
- Patterned by Plants offers an opportunity to draw from nature 'en plein air' before turning your sketches into unique repeating patterns that you can block print on to cloth with natural dye pastes. You'll also try jelly printing and hand painting with botanical colours, creating one-off surface pattern designs.
