…. you just have to eat humble pie and admit that you were wrong!
I was totally wrong. Instead of unloading in the rain, as I had predicted, the redshirts were there to help me do it in warm, glowing sunshine! Above is the view from the studio once it was all set up, but before the students arrived. It was glorious. I had visions of us sitting outside and having our theory discussions in glorious sunshine. Sadly that didn’t happen, but at least the start and finish was sunny. The two lower windows to the left of the above shot were those of my bedroom, and from there I had these secluded views.
Having said that, I didn’t see much of the view in daylight as I was too busy teaching. We had a very industious few days, and dyed some really beautiful colours.
The next dyeing workshop (and the very last public one for this year) is at Busy Bees in Newport on 14th June. Some of you may not know that Busy Bees had an horrendous fire earlier this year, but, despite losing all stock at that time, they have limped on and I’m looking forward to supporting them when we visit. Why not come along and join us? Amongst other things we’ll be dyeing a tee-shirt – but maybe not in the way you expect! To enrol on the course contact Busy Bees via this page, preferably by email as there may not be anyone there to answer the phone.
