Natural Dyeing Workshop 2014

The results of our efforts


During a two day workshop on Natural Dyeing, four students participated.  The first day we dyed to achieve yellows…tansy, osage orange and fustic in the morning.  The afternoon was devoted to reds…cochineal, madder and logwood to give purple.  The next day we spent with indigo and woad…dyeing natural whites and then overdyeing some of the yellows to give greens and the cochineal coloured yarns to give purples.  This produced a full range of colour.
