About the event
Each month we will be experimenting with a different dye and producing some swatches for keeping and light testing. Time will be spent discussing the previous months dye and any light testing results. A speaker will be arranged either in person or via zoomlink up to discuss a specific technique or practice.
These monthly clubs are reflective of similar ones we ran online during the pandemic and are a way for dyers and those interested in the craft to come together sharing knowledge and expertises in a real life environment. Everyone will be encouraged to share work and talk about how they use natural dyes.
Sessions will start promptly so we are ask that you are on time. There is parking available on site and you will need to provide your registration 24 hours in advance to prevent a ticket being issued. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available during the sessions.
If you wish to bring some of your own fibres to test in the sampling sessions feel free. However do make sure they are scoured and mordanted prior to the session for best results.
If you are unable to make a sessions and give 48 hours notice we will be able to transfer your booking to a later session.
