Natural dye workshops are held at the Palliser Ridge Farm woolshed, 226 Te Rata Road, Pirinoa, South Wairarapa. The cost is $75 per participant (limited to 10 people). Enjoy a fun and inspiring afternoon, home made afternoon tea and the good company of a group of keen dyers.

We will provide you with 3 x 50g skeins ready to dye, and up to 2 more skeins will be available if you want more. The equipment and utensils needed are supplied and we offer several natural dye colours to work your magic with the skeins. Take home notes are provided.

You should bring an apron, wear closed-toe shoes (for safety) and wear clothes that you won’t be worried if they get a splash or two on.

The schedule of classes for 2019 is below. Further dates will be finalised soon.
