Jane Deane will be running two natural dye workshops this year at Leewood, a riverside smallholding in the Walkham Valley, Dartmoor.


The courses will cover mordanting and dyeing on yarn and cloth. Shibori, printing and using mordant pastes can be covered if the participants wish to try these techniques. They have a wide range of dyeplants in the dye garden and many trees and shrubs that can be used on the site.

All the dyeing is carried out using environmentally sensitive methods and using non-polluting ingredients.

All equipment and materials will be provided though if you wish to bring something of your own to dye, please do.

There are a maximum of 8 places on each course.

Cost: £40 per day, £70 for both days.
