Plants to Dye For - Exploring Natural Plant Dyes with Gia Daprano

Sat 31st March 2018

Plant materials  are sourced from the neighbouring woods and hedgerows at Horsepool Apiary (SE Cornwall, the Rame Peninsula, near Sheviock) and supplemented with some bought  natural dye materials and  mordants. We experiment with naturally made mordants and often achieve startling results with household products!

Botanical adventures begin within
our hedgerows…

We are based on the beautiful Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall. You can choose from hedgerow walks with stunning sea views, coastal walks that finish on the wonderful Cornish shoreline, woodland walks and even discover what's hidden in the wild urban landscapes of our nearest city, just across the water - Plymouth. We range in price from our popular monthly wild food walks (with a cookery class using the wild produce we've collected at the end also included!) for just £20 an adult and children go free. Bespoke private walks can be arranged at any time (and location of your choosing) - and we also offer exciting packages tailored for honeymooners and corporate team building days etc (please see the relevant pages on this site!). We also run courses in traditional countryside crafts - such as bee keeping, willow weaving and working with wild game.
