Woad Me Again!







Denise Lambert, the master woad dyer, visited the chateau on Thursday for a day of woad dying. While I was dipping in some old hemp torchons and aprons, I asked myself, can one ever woad too much? After woading (is that a verb?) for the sixth time in the past few years, I quickly decided - no! One can never have too much of this beautiful French blue in their lives!

You absolutely cannot have too much of woad or any blue really. And that first picture, I'm assuming it's lace, is just so gorgeous!!
I could only ever have woad coloured clothing and be happy for the rest of my life

I am sooo sad you are sold out for your October woad workshop. I hope you offer it again someday soon.
Thank you for all of your colorful inspiration, it is so refreshing!
