Growing Colours Project

The Outdoor Learning team have been working on a Lottery funded project about using natural things to dye fabric. There are so many plants grown in the UK that can produce a dye; different parts of the plant can be used to get different colours e.g. their roots, petal, leaves or bark.

Lockdown has been difficult in many ways but it has given us time to research and practice using both wool and cloth to see what colours we can make. In between the lockdowns we have been able to offer workshops to pass on our knowledge.
