Please note that this is a condition for taking part in this course.

Natural wool dyeing - Taught by Liz Benson

On this single day course with Liz Benson, you will learn to dye wool using flowers, roots and tree bark, each of which can release a range of beautiful soft colours. 

You will learn how to develop different plant colourings, discover the magic of mordants and alter colours by modifying the pH of water. You will also experiment with over-dyeing, which is the process of infusing one colour on top of another. You will go home with about 240g of wool in 20g skeins with colours that compliment each other, perfect for a Fairisle or stripy knitting project.

Wernog Wood has an abundance of wildflowers, plants and trees from which you you can forage, or welcome to plants from your own garden.
