kitchen colours


Planning for another natural-dye teaching sample.


All colours made using kitchen-waste dyes. It means I can get a dyeing fix whilst waiting to use some of this season's plants.

Up here in the North of England Spring has suddenly arrived with bright mornings and green shoots everywhere. I've been out digging all morning in the sunshine here.

    1. Thanks Sandra. The blues came from the soaking water from some black beans (they made a nice salad!)

  4. Thanks Jenny. It's very satisfying getting all that colour from things that would have gone straight in the compost bin.
