Ditchling Workshop June 17th

A busy but fun day at Ditchling with  Jenny Dean where we set up 4 dye pots this time: Logwood (Purple), Sappanwood (pink red) and Fustic (warm yellow) and Indigo


Indigo – the dye paste is carefully added to the dye bath

…addition of hydrosulphite

keeping a lid on it helps to reduce the oxygenation – the water should be green

samples show the transformation from green to blue as the colour oxygenates
