Been dyeing to show you............

My recent visit to the Natural Dye Studio at the weekend reminded me that I never got around to posting about the dyeing workshop that I ran at school at the start of June.

Take one lovely warm Saturday afternoon and 12 enthusiastic young fibre artists, undyed yarn and pots of Kool aid ..................................

Thank you too to Eleanor who stayed to help me as the person who was going to be running the workshop had to pull out last minute. We had a really great time.

Oh and this was my little effort........
