hi friends, we are back in action in sunny bay area. i am taking a step back and returning to india to post about our second garden garments workshop that took place in chennai. this time around we had 25 people from all different backgrounds and ages and it was a truly inspiring and fun afternoon. we experimented with 7 different dyes: nocchi (Vitex negundo), turmeric, onion skins, madder, annatto, kaddukai (myrobalan), and red sandalwood.
