Rather a delayed post but better late than never! Whilst Provenance didn’t have an indigo dye class this year we did take the time to get a few pots on the simmer. We have had some amazing results with onion skins and better success with madder this time around. Our trusty indigo vat was re-invigorated and as per usual did not disappoint. Dyeing with walnut husks was new to us and whilst we got this amazing chocolate brown liquid it didn’t translate onto fabric with only a pale taupe achieved.
If you are wondering what to do during lockdown for 4 weeks then dyeing could be the answer!
