I am delighted to be part of the very first Yarnfolk Festival of Wool held in Whitehead on Saturday 5th August. 

There are so many exhibitors, demonstrations and altogether gorgeousness at the festival. Alongside the Yarnfolk fest, Whitehead is also hosting their food and drink festival!

I have been natural dyeing since I was 16.  Inspired by my Granny's blackberries and the colourful patterns they made on my white t-shirts! I will take you through the process of natural dyeing,  keeping the tradition alive. 

During this workshop you well have the opportunity to hand dye your own skein to take home with you. What ever you decide to do with it, don't forget to post pictures on our the Yarnfolk facebook page @yarnfolkfestivalofwool to let us share in your happiness.

Light refreshments are included in the ticket price.
