Welcome to the Cornhill Crafts website. I work mostly with natural dyes and prints on wool, silk and cotton, inspired by the colours and textures of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. I produce plant dyed fleece and yarn, eco-printed scarves and fabric pieces, bags, dye kits, dye plants, handmade paper and more. You can purchase these at local events or by contacting me, along with peg and Brinkley looms which can be ordered at any time.
Most of the plants and dyes that I use are grown in my garden near the Northumberland National Park. Workshops are offered in natural dyeing and weaving using local and rare breed fleece. You can also learn Shibori design techniques and discover how to create eco printed textiles.
