The course

Using ‘waste’ materials we will explore how we can utilise by-products from the kitchen to create beautiful colours. We will consider dyeing within the philosophy of permacouture – an integrated approach about the multiple uses of everyday foodstuffs, from food to fashion, and finally to compost.

Participants can bring a cotton or linen item of clothing to dye if they wish. This item should ideally be un-dyed.

The tutor

Louise runs a small, independent wool company and natural dye studio based in Sussex specialising in single flock, Southdown wool from the South Downs.

Participant information
