A really enjoyable introduction to natural dyeing. In the course we dyed wool, fleece, silk and cotton with a number of plants including material collected from the National Wool Museum's excellent dyer's garden. Susan, the tutor, also provided comprehensive notes on the methods for us. An informative and enjoyable day.
