Killruddery Cut Flowers: Natural Dye Workshop with Kathryn Davey
Bray, Co. Wicklow
25 September 2022
Killruddery House invite you to join them on Sunday 25 September for a Natural Dye Workshop with Kathyrn Davey. Kathryn will guide you through the process of natural dyeing from undyed fibre to beautifully finished naturally dyed textiles.

This event will start with a stroll along our Cut Flower border and around the stunning gardens of Killruddery to gather plants to add to your dye pots. Kathryn will guide you through the process of preparing your fibres for dye through cleaning & mordanting (an ingredient added to ensure the dye binds to the fibre for long-lasting colour).

Kathryn will provide all the necessary materials along with a prepped and mordanted item for you to dye and take home. Participants will have the opportunity to dye various fibres in a wide range of colours & experiment with expanding their palette. Students will leave with their own natural dye swatch book from samples created during class & a finished naturally dyed piece.
