Spring! Colour! Dyestuffs! Bring your natural dyed bits, natural dye stuffs, stories, and adventures with making colour. Discussions should be interesting, and the evening might even be the jumping off point for a dye group project or two. We shouldn’t risk dyeing in the building, but we can learn and make plans. It’s not too late to plant a dye garden.
You can come and listen (or not) even if you’re not interested in dyeing.
(Next month: chemical dyes)
