Monika’s passion and specialty is making wall hangings and tapestry that are both rich in colour and texture. While Monika was searching for ‘one of a kind’ tapestries materials, she discovered botanical dyeing, which allowed her to produce unique yarn colours herself. During the Botanical dyeing workshops, you’ll be taught where to look for dyes, how to effectively mordant the fabric and how to prepare a dye bath.

This workshop is suited for knitters, weavers and spinners, with each student learning how to dye their chosen material. Included in the package to take home is an e-book on botanical dying and a hank of hand-dyed wool. This is a beginners class and no prior knowledge is required.

Dye your yarn and use it the next day in Monika’s weaving class and spend a whole weekend with weaving and yarn!!
