Dive into the fascinating world of colouring textiles with plants in this introductory workshop with natural dyer Ginny and create your own plant dyed ribbons for sustainable gift wrapping or to incorporate into your textile projects.

Learn how to prepare your cloth before dyeing and create 3 different dye baths using kitchen waste, foraged material, and plant extracts. Once dyed the colours achieved will be modified to create further shades.

Each participant will be given a selection of ribbons to dye.

Please note vegan options are available. Suitable for beginners. Please wear old clothing or bring and apron and bring your own rubber gloves, notebook and pen.
