Fundraising for Ukraine

**** Deadline for questions is 1st April, sign up is anytime during April, if you have missed a session or sign up too close for us to send the link you will receive all the recordings ****

6 live Q & A sessions offering you the opportunity to pose your most burning questions to an amazing line up of natural dyers and botanical printers. Not workshops but privileged access to 6 individuals who are highly regarded in their field.

Whether you’re a beginner with a very basic question or someone with more experience and a niggle you can’t quite get your head round no question is too “silly” we want them all!

To attend the sessions we would like you to donate to one of our chosen charities – All Non Governmental Organisations (NGO’s) – listed below. Donations to be a minimum of £35 ( 42€ / $45US / $58CAD / $62AUS / $363HK) (but any amount you feel appropriate above that will be welcomed!)

The chosen charities are –

Support Ukraine from Abroad An organisation in Ukraine providing medicine, first aid and food for Ukraine’s defenders; funds do not go to military equipment / supplies.

Send a receipt from your chosen charity to along with 1 question per session. You will receive an email with the zoom link to all six live moderated sessions. You will also receive a copy of the recordings afterwards. That over 9 hours of access to natural dye specialists.
