I had the pleasure of talking to this friendly guild last night about how to mordant safely for plant dyeing. The group meets in the beautiful village of Roydon in Essex, just across the border from my home county of Herts. https://leavalleyguildswd.weebly.com/
Here are recommended links referred to in my talk.
