RED workshop fun

We had a great time making red/pink colors from the last workshop in Bryn Athyn. We used
madder root, cochineal and did a sample with brazil wood and used an alum mordant and an
iron buff mordant.

 We tied both alum and iron mordanted pieces while we waited for the cochineal
(below images), madder and brazil wood to steep.

Bryn Athyn workshop: Focusing on BLUE Natural Dyes

We had a very successful and fun time dyeing blues last weekend in Bryn Athyn. We focused on using a naturally
fermenting indigo vat and also experimented with making deep blues with Logwood. Shibori and Itajime
techniques were practiced as well and the group made some great discoveries!

The Logwood ended up looking almost black/blue on silk and wool and a blue/purple on cotton
