Natural Dyeing, Felting and Stitch – with wood-fired pizza lunch
13 September @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm BST£110.00
Join us for a day of nature inspired creativity. This workshop encompasses elements of foraging, nature connection and crafting. It is suitable for complete beginners and for those who have experience of plant dyes and crafting.
Using a selection of naturally dyed Pre-felt you will construct and embellish a fabric pouch, purse or mobile phone holder. The pouch will be made using needle felting, decorative embroidery and stitch techniques.
We allow plenty of time for our students to enjoy the gardens and create their work. You will be provided with an exciting range of top-quality materials and resources to take home with you. We will take good care of you during your time with us, serving seasonal treats and refreshments as well as a delicious lunch.
