Natural Dye Experiments

We had a great Natural Dye class tonight at the Cape Fear Studios with Kia Love. We used turmeric, onions skins, avocado, rose petals and orange peels.

Pokeweed Berries

Thursday, September 10, 2020

The Pokeweed berries are ripe! I picked some today and then pressed them to extract the juice. A small bucket yielded one and a half quarts! I soaked a tshirt and a piece of cotton fabric in vinegar then worked it into the spent berry mash. I can't wait to see the results and see how it holds up as a natural dye. P.S - do not eat these berries if they are growing in your area. Good for inks and dyes but not pie!
