experimenting with natural dyes

We did a bit of eco dying in today’s workshop…

dye vat

…boiling some bundles of wool fabric in an onion skin dye vat, with a whole load of materials wrapped up in the bundles

dyed bundles

The bundles looked like artworks in their own right, but we did unwrap them to see what patterns we had created on the cloth…

dyed results

very pleased with the results!
