Summer School –

Summer school on Wednesday was all about Colour, yesterday was about Fibre, tomorrow Stucture. Rachel showed everyone how to use acid dyes. We used specially prepared Dye Bags each containing  merino/bamboo roving, wool roving and goat angor locks (£5 each). Also dyed silk hankies of the type we learned how to spin the day before. Used Ashford dyes which are very easy and safe to use. It was a lovely day so the workshop took place outside. In the afternoon we looked at colour theory, colour wheel, greyscales, and what to consider when choosing colours for projects.
