Historical Dyeing – 28 January 2107

Fellow Member Pat, resplendent in authentic costume, talked us through the under-garments, the footwear and the heavy, capacious dress of a middle class medieval woman.  She is the Paston Heritage Society’s colour specialist, and spends her days happily brewing up dyes using flowers, leaves and roots to produce gentle, subtle colours that blend effortlessly with one another.  A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon which left us all inspired.
