Using a variety of natural dyes including onion skins, turmeric, madder and logwood you’ll learn how to dye natural fabrics such as cotton, silk and linen. You’ll also gain an understanding of how mordants can be used to alter the colours you can achieve.

You’ll come away from the workshop with a colour chart of small fabric samples and some skills to develop further at home.

  • Who is the workshop for?

    This course is suitable for adults who are complete beginners or those who wish to refresh their skills in textiles. Those with an understanding of the process can use the day to develop their skills and gain tutor advice and guidance.

  • Do I need to bring anything?

    Materials including small fabric swatches, mordants and natural dyes will be provided. You may wish to bring some more fabrics to test along with you. If you have any natural dyes you wish to try feel free to bring these on the day.

  • Working Safely

    We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to take part in a workshop without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants to allow plenty of room for social distancing. In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering. We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the new normal. If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us by emailing:

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date. Please note that Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable.

We can also offer the option to transfer to another course or transfer your ticket to a friend or relative in the event that you can’t attend a workshop and course.

If The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason, for example due to tutor illness or if lockdown measures are put back in place your ticket will be refunded in full.
