Madder Experiments

In the spirit of chasing lines of enquiring long considered, a few experiments with Madder are taking place at The Outside. Firstly to get an idea of the range of colours which can be produced from a change in pH. Many different shades of red, orange and pink can be produced, all different but all recognisably Madder.

We also hope to soon test other parts of the Madder plant, such as the berries, for their dyeing properties.
