The 'workshop' number 1 - outdoor area and my kitchen floor!
Above, in what was once a shed, now philosophically referred to as the Patio:
Roll of muslin, large 'copper' on the charcoal burner, bottles of previously-extracted dye, bags of detergent and washing soda, tannin-mordanting pot, sumac leaves as tannin mordant, various dye-pots, sieve for straining dye, rubber gloves, and .... old tights, which make excellent dye-bags.
Left: Lady's Bedstraw roots in preparation. These contain the same natural chemical as Madder roots, but in a smaller quantity. Makes a delightful very pale pink, or more strongly, and pinkish brown.
A few early samples
Cotton muslins, Devon Longwool, and Mohair.
Onion skins: yellow-brown
Indigo blue - 'sig vat' method (stale urine), first attempts.
Madder: pinks, rusty reds, oranges, browns.
Indigo dips over onion skin to try for a green (centre)
Bottom left: various chemical modifications of St John's Wort.
