Pettinengo is a village in the hills above Biella in northern Italy, it has narrow lanes, deer in the streets, lots of noisy people and a beautiful community venture in the peaceful Villa Piazzo. This is where The Wool Box Indigo week-end took place.
I had great fun introducing 10 or so Italian ladies to the joys of dyeing with the organic sugar indigo vat.
Some of the ingredients
Winding LOTS of wool into skeins
We dyed woollen skeins and tops with weld into two depths of yellow and then dipped them into the bio-indigo bath.
That magic moment when ...
I have just returned and am still glowing from the natural dyeing course I was asked to give at the parco della villa Piazzo Pettinengo, near Biella, Italy by The Wool Box. I love Italy and especially this northern corner where my wool is so expertly spun. This workshop experience was good I think for everybody, the organisation was eager and friendly and deliciously Italian, the venue and organic food were superb and everyone involved, organisers, staff and students were warm, interested and relaxed as only Italians (and some from England) can be.

As far as news goes, I am not sure where to start. No doubt the most significant happening for Renaissance Dyeing in April was that Ann the winner of the Great British Sewing Bee wore the Bohemian Rhapsody to the studio on week 3.

Which brings ...
I am not sure, if the term ' we are getting there' is a euphemism for it is complete chaos, but we seem to swing between the two as we continue our transformation of this old Ariegoise farm house into a artisanal dye house. As I am writing the roof of the wool winding room is coming off.
Here is a before picture, pretty isn't it but as a roof it doesn't work.
Here is the moment a few minutes ago when Adriaan moved a nest with three eggs to a safer venue, from there the chicks will be ...
It has been all go here hence the lack of Newsletters. We have moved house and been to l'Aigilles en Fête salon in Paris, It only takes one little sentence to write it but it seemed a lot more at the time! The new house is only 20 km away from the old one where Tee and Simon now live. The new dye-house is still in need of floors, windows, electricity and water, so I will be commuting to the old dye house for a month or so. Woad dyeing of the Poll Dorset will be the first in ...
