A Colourful day!


I have had a fab day on Saturday as I went to the Ruskin Mill, near Stroud, for a training on dyeing with plants.

Not only I learnt many precious tips for the project, but I also discovered the Ruskin Mill, a highly inspirational place with very fresh ideas for a different education.

I will surely report this to the farm as food for thoughts on a new education centre in the making.

You can come and see me at the farm on Wednesday as I will be testing more shades of red using english grown madder mixed with a few secret ingredients!

I will light a few fires and prepare many vats with different mixes so if you fancy abit of fresh air and hard work, I surely could do with help between 10am and 3pm.

I have set up a colour sample board in the education room for you to follow the progress of my experiments.I am still to find the best shade of red for the piece.

I am looking for the eprfect "Turkey Red" so if you know any tips on how to get it, please feed in this blog.

Look forward to see you there!
