Alchemy with Natural Dyes

Students on my workshop [Jenny Leslie] worked very  hard yesterday. We used 3 natural dyes, brasil wood, buckthorn bark and woad.

After dyes some fabric we over dyed with woad and applied after baths to get a very good range of colours.
 
These are the students results aren’t they great.
