What to bring with you on the day

Please bring a packed lunch with you, onion skins if you have any, wear warm clothes that you don't mind getting dirty (although we'll try to stay clean!), don't forget your wellies and rain gear as we'll be outside gathering leaves and vegetation and if you have any naturally coloured felt, silk or wool clothing or yardage that you'd like to print bring it along with you too! The amount we get done is only limited to time and space in the pot.
