save your skins

I signed up for a natural plant dyes workshop next month, and am so excited.

I have been meaning to try my hand at plant-based dying for some time. I have been hoarding bags of onion skins, yellow and red, doing some reading. I am usually a self-taught type of person.

But. My house is small, my time has been limited, and dye pots do take some tending. It will be wonderful to have the kick-start of this class before plunging in on my own.

I promise to keep you updated.

(Folk Fibers artist Maura Ambrose has some wonderful instructions on plant-based dying on her beautiful blog.)
