During the month of August, we are harvesting plants from the dye garden to make locally grown dyes for dyeing a range of textiles and garments. 

Join Babs Behan, founder of Botanical Inks, for a day of harvesting plants from the dye garden and using them to create a special project of your own, using any techniques from the range we offer, including bundle dyeing, shibori tie dye, dye pot dyeing, indigo vat dyeing, screen printing and block printing with natural dyes, wild ink making and hapazome.

We can use dye plants from the garden and other traditional dyes and extracts as you prefer.

Prices range from: £250 - £650 depending on use of time/materials etc.
