Forage and Fabric: A Day of Natural Exploration

We had the most glorious day to have our workshop!  Roseanne took us to Fairy Lake to teach us about foraging for edibles and we also gathered material to dye with.  Sorry there are so many photos but it was so exciting and fun!  Roseann played music while we prepped fabric for dyeing after a shared lunch in my back yard.  The last photo is Roseanne’s “favourite” (not).  It’s a piece I’d put in a container some time ago to dye with compost and it was “ripe” by the time I took it out on Sunday! (but quite lovely – and who knew that all that old peach compost would make such great colour!).  The rest of the photos are of first time eco printers and their work is stunning! And I had the added blessing of having my two sisters stay with me and take the workshop (it’s easy to tell which ones are my sisters!).  Thanks to everyone who attended and made it such a successful and fun day.
