Le printemps est aussi une période d'oiseaux et de nidification, et vous pouvez le faire avec le pull Kea conçu par Bristol Ivy avec sa bordure et son empiècement de plumes fascinantes ...

Spring 2018 Newsletter

Written by [email protected] on March 9, 2018 in Dye House News, Events, Markets, Poll Dorset, workshops

Hello, Yes, Spring IS slowly approaching, time of buds and sproutings. It is still too wet to start in the dye garden but the plans are already in place.

By July it will be high summer and the dye plants will be in bloom and at their best, I hope. There is still a place or two to share this with us on this year's July workshop.

Spring is also a time of birds and nest building and you can do just that with the Kea Pullover designed by Bristol Ivy with its border and yoke of fascinating feathers ...

Le Bulletin Juin 2017

Written by [email protected] on June 13, 2017 in competition, Dye House News, Events, Markets, Natural Dye Plants, workshops

Juin embellit le sol et métamorphose le jardin de colorants dans une palette de teinture. Ici, vous pouvez jeter un coup d'oeil sur certaines plantes du jardin de teintures en ce moment . Ces graines de guède radiants donneront non seulement la culture de guède prochaines années, mais aussi donner cette belle violet foncé à la laine ou de tissu.

J'essaie de gérer le jardin de colorants afin qu'il soit en excellente condition pour l'atelier de teinture à la fin du mois d'août, la météo fait un défi intéressant. Je suis sur le point de récolter ...

Woad Sowing Time Again!

Written by [email protected] on March 16, 2017 in Dye House News, Natural Dye Plants, workshops

Wherever you are in the world, when the daffodils start flowering, that is the time to sow the woad seeds for the coming years blue harvest.

It is a good idea to select a few good plants to allow to go to seed for next years sowing and to remove all the other woad plants before the seeds engulf your neighbourhood and beyond. Woad is classified as an invasive plant in some areas. Leave the culled plants to dry a little before adding them to your compost heap.

This is one of the three sturdiest plants I selected to grow ...
