Hiya! I’m super excited to announce that my natural yarn dyeing workshop is now available as an online course! 🙌 . Delivered via Zoom over two sessions, you'll learn the techniques and methods of natural yarn dyeing, and the vibrant colours that can be achieved through dyeing British wool yarn with food waste, readily available plants and dye extracts. 🌿 . There is also the option to purchase a yarn pack of the yarns I use in the workshop, that have been pre-prepared and are ready for dyeing. 🧶 . The first session will be a live demo and discussion, with a follow-up call two weeks later to share your own experiences and projects. All of the sessions will be recorded and made available to watch again if you cannot make any of the live sessions or wanted to re-watch. 🤓 . There are limited spaces available, as I wanted to maintain the intimate feeling of my face-to-face workshops as much as possible. 💚 . The first two dates for these workshops are: . 🔸Thursday 25th June 4-6pm BST (follow-up on Thursday 9th July 4-5pm BST) – only a couple of spaces left for this date! . 🔸Thursday 16th July 4-6pm BST (follow up on Thursday 20th July 4-5pm BST) . Check out the ‘Natural Yarn Dyeing Online Workshops’ link in my bio for more information, and please ask me any questions you may have about the process. 🤔 . I’m looking forward to seeing some of you on the workshops – the great thing about online tuition is it doesn’t matter whether you can travel to Bristol or not! 🌍

Lockdown labels, the only way I’ll remember where those colours came from... Is it rinsed though?

Just a reminder to take a break when you need it, don't pressure yourself, and just breathe 😌💗 . Depending on your situation, life may be gaining a sense of normality. . For me, that means returning to full-time work, which also means less time for natural dyeing and other hobbies 😥 . Even though I love creating, I'm trying not to pressure myself to create simply because I have limited time. In case you need to hear it... it's okay to slow things down, even if they're already slow. (Slow and steady wins the race 🐢). . Stay safe everyone! 👋🏻 . #slowartday #justbreathe #creativebreak #naturaldyeing #foraging #naturaldyer #naturaldyersofinstagram #dyestuffs #plantsaremagic #colourfromnature #lovecolour #ecofriendlyart #igdyers #womenwhomake #slowart #slowdyeing #ecodye #dyeartist #slowartmovement #plantdyersofinstagram

Natural dyes episode 4: green 🍃💚 . 1. Red onion skins with iron water (see yesterday’s post for details) 2. Rosemary leaves with baking soda . The baking soda doesn’t really change the colour but I’ve found it tends to make yellow dyes and other pale colours come out a bit stronger. No idea why 🤷🏼‍♀️

Red onion skin dye! It's a lovely soft yellow/gold colour. #redonionskindye #naturaldyeing #colourfromnature

Dyeing with white onion skins on cotton, it's an even richer colour than shows up in the photo. :) #naturaldyeing #onionskindye #colourfromnature #dyefromnature #dyeingcotton

Foraging, gathering and falling in love with tinctures & extractions side by side mountain and river. The importance of slow steps allows one to see and absorb all that is on offer. #morningmeditation #colourfromnature #capefynbos #heather

How good do these look together? This was an order that I sent out last week. When I asked the customer what she was going to do with the yarns she said that she wanted to start doing some tapestry weaving but if she didn’t get round to it these skeins would look beautiful just sitting in a wooden bowl. How nice of her. A decorative feature in their own right. #botanicaldye #colourfromnature #wool #woolyarn

Looking at previous colours that I just adore, do other makers get that heart skip when they look at previous work? its important to love your own product 🤣👏 I've not been dyeing and I can feel the pull to dabble again grab my basket ,get picking and play with my dye pot:) #knittersgonnaknit #knitting #knitters #inspiration#sky #hedgeknitswool #hedgeknitshq #knittersgonnaknit #maker #indiedyer #botanicalcolours #colourfromnature #chippenham #slowlife #slowfashion #ethicalclothing #ethicalfashion #yarnlover

I'll be dyeing some alpaca chunky 100g skeins ,colour can change slightly as it's a different base and I dye everything with plants:) it means you get a totally unique colour just for you . The chunky alpaca makes a fab chunky hat .#hedgeknitswool #knittersgonnaknit #maker #indiedyer #botanicalcolours #colourfromnature #chippenham #slowlife #slowfashion #ethicalclothing #ethicalfashion #yarnlover #knittersgonnaknit #wiw #wiwt #british#naturalfibres
