Airdry Clay

A very special clay which is just like the real thing but doesn’t need to be fired as it will harden by itself when left to dry. The clay is reinforced with nylon fibres to make it strong & when the artistic creation has dried, it can be painted & varnished.

Natural Dyeing

Discover the unique colours of natural dyeing with our selection of books and seeds. Ditchling has long been connected to the magical process of natural dyeing,  mostly thanks to weaver Ethel Mairet (1872 – 1952) who was a handloom weaver and dyer and a pioneer of the 20th-century modern craft revival in Britain. She was an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher, dedicated to passing on to future generations the knowledge and experience gained from her lifetime of experimentation with natural dyes and textiles.
