‘Solar dyeing’ with Helen Melvin of Fiery Felts
Helen Melvin will demonstrate how to make vibrant and exciting multi-coloured solar pots using natural dyes, and how to use such things as eco-friendly rusty nails to alter colour. Helen will share her knowledge from fifteen years of solar dyeing, including the use of foraged dyes. Participants will take away a 1 litre Kilner jar filled to the top with dyes, wool and silk fibres ready to sit in the sun, and slowly change to creating vibrant subtle colours. Suitable for both beginners and experienced natural dyers.
