Love Nature - Love Fabrics - Love the Outdoors Learn what colours are hiding in our hedgerows This is a retreat to learn, experiment and appreciate natures colours. COURSE DETAILS Adventurous but relaxing, this will be an exploration into our farm hedges, finding, collecting, and learning about an assortment of plant matter suitable for fabric dying and experimenting to see what array of colours they produce. Working together with others, gathering, processing, and making dyes is a great way to make the hearty work light & fun. We will be lighting fires and dying in the open air at our group camping venue "The Billabong", beside the river Arun. Using natural fibres, mordanting processes & age-old natural dyeing techniques we will develop a range of colour samples and understand the stages of dyeing. The aim of the weekend is to have an enjoyable time in our great outdoors, give you a good basic knowledge of the seasonal plants available for dyeing and skills to build confidence for you to continue experimenting at home. COURSE TIMINGS The course will run from 10am on Thursday to 4pm on Friday. CAMPING Camping is open from 2pm Wednesday allowing plenty of time to set up camp, start scouring/ mordanting your fabric & enjoy the first night around the campfire. Tents or Campervan are preferred, there will be a minimum availability for Caravans. EQUIPMENT Equipment and materials are all provided, although there will be a suggested kit list of extras you may want to bring, available after booking.
