Im looking for £300 to start up my allotment dye garden to buy plans shed and wood for boarders then be able to natural grown plants and herbs for natural dyeing to customers whom wish to explore this natural wonder to educate that colour does not have to fake and chemicals. In return i am offering talks classes or lessons in spining weaving or dying or plants/herbs for dying to whom support me. We are living in times of great change is need in how we approach textiles for clothing. Thank you for supporting

    You will be able to buy herbs/plants for natural dyeing but these will be grown in pots in my garden as i have follow the terms and conditons of the allotment plot but you will be able to come a visit me at the allotment to see how the plants grow
