What happens in this class?

Even in London, there are plants we can use creatively all around us. Join natural dye expert, Flora on this guided walk, where you'll learn how to identify and harvest natural dye plants, as well as some edible and medicinal plants that grow all around us. She'll share how best to harvest wild plants, and how to spot good places for gathering. This is a wonderful way to explore the green side of London and the secrets of the plants around you!

There's no need to use chemical dyes and washing machines to create colours on fabric…

Very informative and inspiring. Especially the tips on natural ideas for mordants instead of the poisonous chemicals that are often used and promoted.

Flora was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna around Battersea Park and had brought some naturally dyed wool and fabric samples from a huge variety of plants. We didn't do any plant foraging though which was the impression I had from reading the event information prior to the evening walk.

A really informative couple of hours on natural plant dyes, both suitable plants and basic techniques. Flora really knows her stuff. The only slight disappointment was that the sale of the workshop implied that we would actually be foraging, and we weren't, just walking around the park having plants pointed out to us.

Your Teacher

London is a hub of creativity, culture, and of course, craft, but it’s also a terrible time thief. London Craft Club founder, Sonia, used to be a member of an awesome little group called Crafty Mums. They were creative, crafty, motivated and united in their interests – but only once in all the years of meeting did they do any actual crafting together! Work, commuting, parenting and all the rest seemed to leave no time to do all the fabulous craft projects that were possible.

Sonia really believed that crafting can be so good for you. Good for socialising, good…

A really interesting walk covering a lot of plants. It was also really useful to see examples of dyed fabrics and what to expect. It would have been nice to have a bit more information in the booklet as it was minimal.
