This one day workshop focuses on natural dyeing using a range of sustainable materials found in Loch Ness woodlands and kitchens. Suitable for all levels of experience from beginners to those familiar with yarn dyeing.
We start the day with some easy natural dyeing using locally sourced ingredients. Following this the workshop offers a unique opportunity to forage for dye materials in either SSSI, ancient woodland or new woodland near Loch Ness. Followed by a visit to a local cafe for lunch. We then return to site to learn more about preparing the materials and recap on methods used in the morning.
Lunch is provided, please make the organiser aware of any special dietary requirements when booking.
Accomodation is NOT provided, please contact Visit Scotland for any assistance with finding accomodation. Workshop start time can be adjusted to allow for travel from Inverness and surrounding areas.
This course is run entirely outside no matter what the weather, so please dress appropriately for a Scottish summer and foraging in woodlands.
You will leave this workshop with 100g/5 mini skeins of naturally dyed yarn. Vegan yarn (cotton, linen, hemp) is available on advance request.
