Natural Dying for Kids

We have recently had the most amazing time learning all about Natural Dying! The lovey Anita took us through all the processes to make our own unique garments!
She showed us some of the wonderful things she had dyed and what type of fabric works best. Wool is the SUPREME for dying but silk works just as well and even cotton can take some colour depending on what you have used!

We all got to collect some of our own natural goodies and then went to work on placing them on pieces of cloth (mostly found at the Op Shop) ready to be wrapped and boiled!
We were all soooo keen to un-roll them but were advised by Anita to wait a week and see.....
