Woad Dyeing Workshop (12/10/16)

It was an informal dyeing day with students 
dropping in help with the process.

First, the woad plant was stripped of its leaves and then left to soak for an hour in hot water.

While we waited for the woad, we began designing our cotton tablecloth and UBC Orchard Garden banner.

Next we applied the beeswax on the fabric before dyeing it in the woad/chemical solution.

After that, the fabric was left to dry....
