Rust dyeing at the LeBaron studio

Five of us from the Denman Quilters group spent a morning at Bentley LeBaron's studio learning about rust dyeing from Danni Crenna.

Danni kindly allowed us to use items from her wonderful collection of rusty objects.
Bentley came to turn on the lights and work inside the studio just as we were finishing.

Jane, on the left, wore an appropriate t-shirt, Danni on the right, was our teacher.
