A blue week.

A few weeks ago (where does the time go?) some lovely ladies spent a week at the studio working with woad. Woad is a plant whose leaves have been used to create a blue dye from Neolithic times.
We dipped.
And tied.
And hung things out to dry.
There was homework with fabrics and laces to rinse and wash .
The studio assistant was very bored as we were so busy.
