Hand dyeing workshops

An Introduction to natural dyeing with Earthues and Hue & Dye natural dye extracts

If you've ever fancied natural dyeing but have been put off by thoughts of grinding up barks, bugs and fungi, this is the course for you! Simple to use and extremely versatile, Earthues extracts are fully intermixeable powders and pastes which can be used to produce a wonderful range of colours.

This course is suitable for complete beginners as well as for those who have some dyeing experience but would like to try natural dyeing. In this fun-packed, friendly day you will learn how to mordant (fix) fibres, and dye luscious, solid shades. There will also be the opportunity to try your hand at rainbow dyeing and colour blending.

All materials are provided and you will go home with a lovely range of colour samples and a head buzzing with exciting ideas for experimenting with colour!

All materials, tea and coffee are included but please bring a packed lunch.

Venue: The Scout Hall, Woodbourne Road, Sale, Cheshire

How to get there: The hall is accessible by public transport, being a short walk from Brooklands metrolink station and with regular buses from Manchester City Centre and surrounding areas. The hall is a short drive from the M56 and is close to the M60 and M62. We will send you full details with your booking confirmation.
