Dig a Bulb Day
Help the gardening team lift the spring bulbs. Bring you own bag to take the bulbs home with you. Tips on how best to store bulbs & make a good display next year.
Standard entrance fee.
Fergus will facilitate the group in the discovery of natural colours that can be sourced from the local area. These colours are often apparent, but also often hidden within plants, fungi, and seaweeds, within roots, barks, berries, and leaves of countless botanicals. Working with differently mordanted fabrics, and through the creation and use of paper made from different mushroom species, participants will discover the many unique variables involved in the extraction and setting down of colour.
£20 per person. Pls bring your own lunch.
