Morley College Garden is a little green oasis of tranquillity, just minutes’ walk from busy Waterloo Station. The Morley textile tutors are opening our secret garden especially for the Chelsea Fringe to give you a taste of the wide range of textile courses we offer, using natural materials from our own flowerbeds.

We will use natural dyes from the new dye garden to dye fabric and make felt flowers, and also create handmade paper and woven basketry flowers using plant fibres from the garden. We are offering 2 hour workshops in each skill – try one or two!

In case of very inclement weather, we will retreat to the Morley College textiles studio.
