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 & Friday 21st & 22nd September 2023 – FULLY BOOKED
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.
I’m just scheduling my workshops for 2024, please do get in touch if you would like to go on the mailing list for these
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.
