    Hi Jules,
    Catherine from Richmond SnB here, Kemena on Rav.
    I have loads of fungi growing around my house, near Daylesford, and having been inspired by Norwegian friends, want to do a spot of trial dying.
    I think that what I need to do is pick them, cut them smallish and mix with water and then steep my wool in the fungi/water mixture. I’m cool with this.
    I guess that my mix would need to be coolish so as not to shrink/felt my wool. But, I think that I would get a more active dye bath if the fungi/water mix were heated before use. True?
    The things I know nothing about are mordants and post-dye fixes. Where should I look to find recipes for these?
    Are you still working at Morris & Sons? Should I find you there? Or perhaps meet up for a knitting beverage?
    Thanks from the beginner

    Hi Jules !

    I’m really keen on learning a bit about extracting natural pigments and making dyes and was wanting to know when youd have a class or organise a private one?

    Look forward to hearing from you !
