About the event
Fay will show you the best plants to use for natural dyeing and you will draw on them to dye a selection of wool skeins to take home with you.
While the dye pots are simmering, you will learn different braiding techniques and enjoy refreshments in this lovely setting. Suitable for complete beginners.
Fay first learnt about dyeing when she was a Tudor re-enactor at Kentwell Hall. She has built up an eclectic knowledge of native dye plants and their identification.
