Dyeing crafts is our online store located within the grounds of our nursery school and Kid's club in Suffolk.
Our aim is to encourage the teaching and preservation of traditional crafts using natural resources. We strive to be as self sufficient and eco friendly as possible.
We grow and sell a selection of reliable natural dyes, including woad, weld, madder and coreopsis. Natural dyes give a wide range of wonderful, subtle and superior colours. They are the most ecologically sound and by using them in preference to synthetic dyes we can help reduce our carbon footprint.
Cultivated dye and medicinal plants are our speciality – along with the processing of our alpaca fibre.
I am happy to organise tours/demonstrations to interested groups where you can see first -hand the wonderful plants that provide the pigments essential to natural dyeing and demonstrate some of the secrets of natural dyes as used in the Medieval days, including woad, weld, madder and coreopsis.
If you are interested in booking a tour or would like further information please contact me via email:- firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile 07971 457 184
