It was absolutely fascinating to visit Helen (and of course her adorable dog Judy, below!) and see the whole process of spinning and dying yarn going on in her home - from the fleece drying over her bath to the spinning wheel in her front room!
Helen taught me the process of space-dying yarn (a bit like a combination of cooking and painting!), then demonstrated the magic (and it really is like magic) of indigo dying. The Amazings team caught it all on camera, along with Helen and I having a good old chat and finding so much in common (about craft, life and herbal tea!).
Finally, I got to use some of Helen's gorgeous naturally dyed yarns to make some textile jewellery specially designed for the video workshop - so if you fancy learning about dying and spinning yarn, and following our special textile jewellery workshop, watch this space for the release of the video at The Amazings!
