About your host

Eco Dying is an easy way to upcycle recycle transform garments. No chemicals, just gentle science using wool, silks, linens and other natural fibres. This is a healthy way to walk gently on our earth. I'm an experience teacher of crochet, craft and music with the ability to get you excited about textiles and get your creativity flowing. My vast knowledge and resources is to be shared with you.

What we’ll do

After arriving we select the textile to dye. Wools, silks and natural fibres work best. I will show you how to soak the fabric in the mordant (and there are a few). We will then walk around the property choosing your specific leaves, flowers, mushrooms, bark, sticks for your textile. There's also a visit to the shed for some rusty items to enhance our eco dying process. Then the fun…

What else you should know

DOn't need to bring anything! If you have a garment you wish to dye please bring it and there will be time for me to give you advice and ideas.

What I’ll provide

Drinks
Cuppa, homemade ginger beer or lemonade
Equipment
Fabric, mordant, all equipment supplied. Just bring your creativity
