Discover how nature can provide colour in our lives. Join us as we forage and use local dye plants to colour fabrics, and create your very own dodo tote bag to take home.

Artist Kate Turnbull will be guiding you through this day-long workshop. We'll begin with picking our own plants in University Gardens, dyeing fabric samples in the colour lab at the Museum, and applying the results of your experiments to a dodo tote bag, which you'll be able to take home.

Tickets cost £70 for an adult and £60 for a student (proof of studentship required). Make sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Important information:

Please note that the workshop includes a walk from the Museum to University Parks and back, and a walk around the park.

Participants are invited to bring their own packed lunch. There is also a Museum café on-site and a number of food providers within a ten-minute walk.
