Give six women
pieces of wool, silk, cotton and linen
small jars of natural dyes, extracts and pigments
and you get
a day that started with
resolutions to calculate percentages of weight to the n'th degree
disagreement of results of said calculations
spillages and accidents...oops
breakdown in resolution to be accurate
laughter, laughter, laughter
Cochineal crushed to a powder..
did not produce the colour we expected..
so we added some vinegar..
more to learn about that one.
Dyer's Broom.... liked that one.
As usual wool sucked up colour beautifully
and Linen absorbed the least.
Madder was my favourite.
We learn something new each time.
A great day with Diane, Betsy, Sharon, Marilyn, Sheila.
