My first attempt of dyeing fabric after watching the workshop. I mixed up some dyes to two intense purples: eggplant and amethyst. I also used plain black to find out of which colors is was build up. As you can see all my fabric is very light,you can hardly see the texture I whished for. I am not sure what went wrong; dye bath to cold, not enough salt or soda, something wrong with the dyes ... Not as intense as I expected, yet lovely lilac, and inviting to do more experiments. Will be continued ;-)
