Wild Colour & Pattern

2 day workshop, choice of dates

Join me  to forage for natural dyes on the South Downs & make your own natural dye recipe book as well as a larger piece to take home with you. You will learn how to identify seasonal dye plants that are growing on these beautiful chalk uplands, make up a wide range of dye baths and use mordants & after baths to create a wonderful range of patterns & colours.

This year – for the first time I’ll also be showing you how to print with mordants so that you can make patterns from your foraged dyes – this is something new I’ll be teaching and I’m very excited about sharing this ancient craft with you X

I’m running three 2 day workshops in 2023 which will happen around the Spring, Summer & Autumn Solstices:

Thursday 22nd & Friday 23rd June 2023

Thursday & Friday 21st & 22nd September 2023

The workshop cost £280 including all materials and recipe sheets. They take place in the beautiful Wiston Village Hall, West Sussex and run from 10am – 4pm each day.

Ps Here’s what previous students have said about this workshop:

Sarah is a fantastic tutor and shared so much of her knowledge

I came away feeling like I had learnt something completely new & worthwhile

I can’t wait to start experimenting with natural dyes now I’ve completed this fantastic course.
