Indigo

I've really been enjoying working with the natural dyes so far, it's challenging and it doesn't always work out like the recipe I'm following but I guess that's part of the beauty.
This week I had the opportunity to attend an indigo workshop and speak to an ex-student about her work with indigo.
I'm excited to get stuck in with the indigo and to try the madder I bought online.
The challenge is to create some direct prints with the natural dye stuffs!
