Què farem?

I'll demonstrate the process and begin mordanting some of the wool you'll be dyeing (preparing them to accept the dye) . You will harvest natural dyes from my small holding; blackberry, birch leaves or dandelions for example, depending what's in season. There'll be some silk scarves already mordanted and dyestuff soaking which we can use: eg. daffodills or apple leaves. We may also use natural dyes from my collection; eg. madder root or fustic wood chips. Then you'll dye a silk scarf or some wool (either unspun fleece or spun wool from my collection) which you can then take home with you. You can use resist techniques to create some pattern. I have chemical (aluminium sulphate and ferrous sulphate) and vegetable mordants (rhubarb leaves) available. Dyestuffs and vegetable mordants will vary according to the season. Daffodills are only available in the Spring!
Other things to note
We will be working outdoors at least part of the time. Please do come dressed appropriately for the weather and wear stout shoes. Wear clothes that you won't mind getting muddy or splashed with dye

I have been fascinated by natural dyeing for many years after gaining a Batchelors degree in textile design nearly 40 years ago. I have been teaching natural dyeing for the last 4 years. It's an exciting process and the colours you can achieve with natural materials are well worth the effort. I have a range of materials we can use for dyeing growing on my smallholding: eg. daffodils, blackberry leaves, rhubarb etc. as well as some imported dyestuffs: eg. madder and fustic wood chips.

On aniràs?

Well gather dyestuffs from around the smallholding, about 4 miles from Totnes. You will be dyeing wool and/or silk over portable gas stoves and/or wood fires. We'll be under cover in the polytunnel if the weather is wet or windy.

I spent a most enjoyable few hours in a beautiful, tranquil nature setting where Noni showed me how to bring the wondrous subtle plant colours to life in the dyeing of natural wools and silks. Noni explained the plants that were being used in the dye baths and how to prepare each one so that they could be used to make the dye colour. Noni is a warm, welcoming host who, through her open sharing, has given me a sackful of inspiration and confidence for future projects so that I can now try this for myself in my own home or garden with local plants that are readily available to all. I would highly recommend this experience as it is a great deal for the pennies spent! With gratitude and thanks, Susan - April 2109
