Dyed in the Woad

/







Last year I took a textile course held in the beautiful 18th century Chateau Dumas where we collected various pieces of vintage linens and then dyed them in woad using an ancient technique shown to us by Denise Lambert. I have to say that the smell of the woad was too say the least quite revolting but easily forgiven for producing such beautiful shades of blues.
