RED workshop fun

We had a great time making red/pink colors from the last workshop in Bryn Athyn. We used
madder root, cochineal and did a sample with brazil wood and used an alum mordant and an
iron buff mordant.

 We tied both alum and iron mordanted pieces while we waited for the cochineal
(below images), madder and brazil wood to steep.
