March Meeting : Part 2 of 3

 Joan showed examples of Eco dyeing which she first did in a workshop with the now famous India Flint.
Different effects are achieved by wrapping various plant and leaf items, and/or metal nuts, bolts, nails and old hardware in the wetted fabric. 

Everyone was given a small piece of felt which they made into a tightly bound package with the dye materials.
We each went home with a worm-like creature with instructions to leave it in a sunny spot for several days (or weeks?).  Time will tell what results we get.
