Natural Dyeing Day – Sept 2013

December 30, 2013

On a sunny day in September, we enjoyed a day of natural dyeing using madder (red/orange), weld (yellow), Japanese indigo and woad (blue). Thanks to Susan, Ashley and Brian for sharing their expertise, and to Claire for sharing her home and garden.
