I love meeting other craftspeople and sell my products at a small selection of events in the UK and further afield.



Join Julia for a full-day workshop on transferring colours found in local plants onto fabric and yarn.

We will cover the key aspects of natural dyeing: fibre preparation and mordanting, sourcing dyestuffs, the various steps involved in preparing and working with a natural dyebath, mordants and modifiers, safe dyeing practice, keeping records of dye experiments and other tips.

We'll also take a short walk to explore the dye potential of plants growing in urban Glasgow.

25 SHADES FROM ONE DYEBATH: Saturday, February 10

Learn how to use mordants and modifiers before and after dyeing to achieve a subtle range of shades from one dyebath, made with the ancient dyestuff, madder.

In this dynamic full-day workshop, designed for both the adventurous first-time natural dyer and those with some experience, we'll cover the key aspects of preparing and working with a dyebath; sourcing dyestuffs, preparing and working with a dyebath, fibre preparation, mordanting and modifying, safety, record-keeping and other tips. If you are particularly interested in working with local dyes, please have a look at the above workshop, Introduction to natural dyes and local colour.

YELLOW AND BLUE MAKES GREEN: Saturday + Sunday, June 24 + 23

Exploring greens, the most elusive of colours in natural dyes, this two-day workshop is for those who have done the introductory local colour workshop or have some experience working with natural dyes.

We’ll work with local and exotic sources of yellow, exploring the different types of yellow dyes and their chemistry, hue and fastness.

We'll then focus on indigo, creating a vat to produce myriad shades of green. These two days of exploration should give participants a deeper understanding of how to achieve a desired shade of green.
