Natural Dyeing Workshop 2019 – TH.CARS2 Archive

Natural Dyeing Workshop 2019

A well attended day-long workshop was held on Sat 7th Sept at Wevolution, Paisley. For those who missed May’s workshop, this workshop offered another chance to take part in a daylong beginners’ workshop exploring natural dyeing techniques led by textile artist Gillian Steel.

Woad dyeing was the main focus of the workshop but the use of cochineal dye (i.e. bug based) was also explored.



Paisley TH.CARS2 is funded through the 5-year Paisley TH.CARS2 regeneration project and forms part of a wider community engagement programme focused on Paisley’s Textiles and architectural heritage.

Paisley TH.CARS2 is a Renfrewshire Council led project with match funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic Environment Scotland.
