After the fun of our paper making workshops two weeks ago, pupils visiting Linn Park Adventure Playground were able to explore more of the area’s rich heritage by looking at hand dying techniques.
They were inspired to create these beautiful, colourful bags after learning about the dye works and bleach fields that sprung up around the White Cart River in the 18th and 19th century. Pupils explored different techniques for transferring dyes and inks to fabrics – including marbling with shaving foam!
Workshops will be ongoing until August 2017, keep an eye on our website for announcements about our summer heritage programme for children and young people at Linn Park Adventure Playground.
These workshops are made possible thanks to generous support from Heritage Lottery and the money raised by National Lottery players.
