Life after Work

Natural Dye Workshop Day 2

Adding yarn to more dyebaths

After beginning our second day here at the Blue River Retreat with another great breakfast and morning walk it was back to the dye pots for me. Today we focused on post-mordanting with copper and tin as well as trying out a variety of exhaust baths and combinations of them, with exciting results. All of a sudden the number of samples ballooned and we spent quite some time filling out the sample cards, attaching yarn samples, and winding our mini-skeins to take home.

Here is a link to my Flickr set for the whole workshop.
