We are looking forward to a pleasant summer of events, with a visit to Ymuno Festival here in North Wales and a brilliant new course, learning how to colour cloth using medieval dye plants.
Over a long weekend in July, from 1st – 4th we will be visiting the Ymuno Festival in North Wales for a weekend of music, art and poetry. We will be taking along our child-sized timber frame building with us, for willing little hands to put together and learn all about traditional buildings. Tickets and line-up information can be found here – Ymuno.com
And we are very excited to announce a new workshop that we are holding on 20th August. Justine Aldersey-Willimas from The Wild Dyery will be joining us, to teach us how to dye natural fibre cloth using historic dye plants. We will be producing a spectrum of vibrant, beautiful, natural colours using Madder, Woad and Weld, and learning how to pattern the dyed cloth with an ancient Japanese resist method called Shibori. Please see the training section of our website for further details.
