We are delighted to announce the details of Debbie's latest weekend workshop - Natural Dyeing at the Hut!

When: Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July 2011

Time: 10am – 4pm each day

Where: The Scout Hut, Woodbourne Road, Sale, Manchester

What: Enjoy two days of natural dyeing!
 
Saturday will be hand dyeing with a wide range of natural dye extracts (expect to come away with about 80 plus colour samples by the end of the day!).

Sunday will be a day of indigo and woad dyeing and everyone will set up their own indigo or woad dye vat. There will also be some overdyeing thrown in for good measure.

We'll be sampling with yarns but you are welcome to bring your own fabrics/yarns/fibres etc. to dye and we can have some fun with fabric manipulation, random-dyeing, handpainting yarns/fabrics and more. If you’ve never tried dyeing but would like to know how, this is a great opportunity to give it a go!
 
The price for the two full days will be £100 per person which includes all dyes, materials for samples, yarn, tea/coffee and biccies (but please bring along something for lunch).

If you would like to book for one of the days it will be £55 per person. Please book early as the class size will be small to make sure everyone gets the most out of the course.
