DYEING WITH INDIGO AND OTHER NATURAL MATERIALS

Date: October 9
Time: 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

A textile was not finished when it came off the loom or knitter’s needles.  Adding color to yarns and fabrics enhanced their aesthetic and textural qualities.  Watch demonstrations by Interpreters from the Textile Shop in the Stableyards including creating dye stuffs extracted from plants, chemical compounds, and insects along with dyeing the wool shorn from the flock of Middleton sheep.

This event is free with a general admission ticket and free for members.
