Join us as natural dyes and dye recipes of the 18th century are recreated to achieve a spectrum of dazzling colors, with each recipe as different as all the colors we experiment with every time the fires are lit. You might see the wool of our own Leicester Longwool sheep takes on new hues, or maybe different fabrics, yarns, and fibers change before your eyes.
