Family Activity - Steam Dyeing!

Posted on July 09, 2014 by Emma Nicolson

Our  first family activity of the Summer started with the sun shining and the group rummaging through the flower beds collecting some lovely colourul plants. These were made up into vegetation bundles ready for steaming. Whilst the steaming was taking place, the group learned how to make medieval braids with yarn until the bundles were ready to be unravelled!   More family activities are coming up soon, see the website for details of Pond Dipping and Charcoal Burning, Waterwheel Challenge, Spinning and Hand Weaving, and Felted Sock Making.
