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!
