We just spent a wonderful day with Permacouture at Hackney City Farm in central London, walking in the local park, picking plants to dye with, wrapping bundles of silk, dyeing them in pans of dockweed, onion and elderflower, hanging them to dry and chatting to lots of people who love flowers and fabrics!
After admiring the spectacular results, we all sat down to eat a delicious meal with the same plant groups we’d used all day for textiles! Even the earthenware we ate from was fired with some of the natural pigments we used. The potter joined us too.
There’ll be another event in August 2012 so if you’d like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
