The Creative Granary
Arts & Crafts Workshops
Mary, a lifetime craftswoman, has spent the last 56 years involved in many different crafts, always willing to try something new and to share with others her passion for all things handmade.
The Creative Granary offers a range of workshops for half days and two days, for Dyeing Fabric with Plants, Relief Printing, Flora Printing, Abstract Painting and Shibori. These will be run from a converted nineteenth century granary on the farm where Mary lives in rural Herefordshire.
The unruly dyers’ garden has been grown to provide the plants for use in the workshops, but as the seasons change from summer to autumn, so will the availability of dye plants and it will become necessary to go further a field when some dyes will be made from fruit and vegetable matter and others sourced from the hedgerows.
The full details of the workshops can be found on the website and these must be booked in advance.
The workshops are for all those who are interested in creativity, beginners and others alike. However, because of the type of tools used in some instances, the workshops are not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 years, except the Abstract Painting class which is open to children also.
To book, either complete the booking form via the website, or simply ring the Creative Granary and choose which workshop you would like to do. If there is no one immediately available to take your call please leave details and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
