Jenny Dean‘s fabulous workshop was a Christmas present from my Dear Husband.
The Ditchling Art and Craft Museum, is a beautiful venue for workshops.
The brilliant Jenny Dean is an amazing tutor and so generous in sharing her experience of natural dyeing – so many colour variations are possible using plants from our very own gardens.
We started with pots of water, added lots of plant materials – Weld, Cochineal (beetles!), Prussian Blue and Madder – then some wool yarn, stirred and waited.
Lots of rinsing later and we had some lovely yarns drying in the sunshine – look at this stunning rainbow of colour!
A colourful end to a wonderful day. My head was buzzing all the way home.
