Fibre Fridays- Dyeing

Wow, what a fantastic way to end our Fibre Fridays series! We had the wonderful help of Master Spinner Donna Rudd to teach us how to dye wool. For our natural dyes we used marigold flowers with various mordants to create the different shades. And for a bit of extra fun we did a rainbow dye pot too!
We hope that all of the guests who came out to our Fibre Fridays events had a fun and educational experience. We hope to see you all next year!
