Making Natural Dye Solar Jars

Using just the UV light of the sun, solar dyeing uses natural dyes from plants to create beautiful colours on yarn, fibre and fabric. Join us as we guide you through this step-by-step process to choose leaves, flowers and materials to create your own solar jar. Take your jar home and leave it closed for at least one month before revealing beautiful, coloured materials.
