At the end of the day/week

And so launches a summer of workshops.
    Last Saturday the first of the Dyeing Days, 
    on Wednesday a trip to Devon teaching 
Indian Stitch techniques. and yesterday 
the second Dyeing Days workshop.  
Brilliant. A lovely day, great enthusiastic
 students, who took home lots of 'creative' 
washing.  Small shibori pieces and long 
lengths for scarves. 

Since it was really warm I couldn't resist 
setting up the first indigo vats of the summer. 
A surprise treat. Decisions, decisions.  
Procion or Indigo?  

Fingers crossed the weather will be kind next
weekend, I'm taking a two day Indigo workshop
which will include colour stripping and rust
dyeing.    Gosh, it is good to get the vats out!


Remains of the two buckets of indigo.

Call in the cleaners

I haven't seen the student list, as yet. How wonderful, you are coming down to Dorset. Look forward to meeting you again. Fingers crossed for the weather.
My indigo vats are still going strong - I am now dyeing up and refreshing old t shirts.

There might be a space for you. Ah, the aroma of indigo. Not exactly Chanel No 5.
