Traditional crafts holiday in Scotland
The most memorable part was the excitement of watching the different colours emerging as we used natural dyes and the anticipation of what could be created using them. I have never felt so invigorated, and relaxed?!!!, at the same time. (more)Diane Peel
I loved the whole process of gathering natural materials (lichen, fungus, nettles, birch bark, etc) to dye the wool, the dyeing itself and the amazing array of colours we created with single and secondary dyes. (more)Jennifer Woodward
I felt relaxed during my holiday but I also learned a lot that I could bring back and use during my college studies for sculpture and textiles. It was an excellent combination without the fuss of dye labs and overly processed and wools. (more)Tegan Ford
From 745 - 895 excluding flights
