131. Natural fabric dying

I'm aware of the dying power of nature due to the fact i can't eat blueberries without ruining a tee. So when Anne-Marie showed us how to harness it for good rather than evil i was spellbound.



With Anne-Marie Butland

Anne-Marie teaches things like foraging and plant dying as Evergreen Wilderness Skills.


We learnt about the most effective plants and fruits for dying, how they would dye different fabrics in slightly different shades and some natural fixers or mordents that would keep the colours strong (rhubarb leaf being the most effective)


I'm definitely going to try this a bit more.
