30/1/08 - Primary School

Yesterday's photo isn't a photo at all, but a scan of a couple of the thank you letter we recieved.
I spent the morning with the local primary school kids, they had been brought to the farm on a school trip to see the dyeing.
They are studying the Saxons and have already been to Sutton Hoo, so I managed to tell them stuff about some things they already knew.
I demonstrated indigo for them, its always a real buzz watching peoples faces as the wool turns from green to blue and especially good when your audience is 20 six to eight year olds.
Its nice to be able to put something back into the community - :-)
