DYEING WITH NATURAL MATERIALS

Date: April 9, 2022
Time: 11:00 am - 4:00 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 will take place in the Stableyards at Middleton Place and is free with a general admission ticket.
