Tricia loves colour… she is often to be found dyeing fabric or thread or painting a canvas with a vibrant palette of colour… but one colour in particular fascinates Tricia and that’s the colour blue… indigo has been used for centuries to dye fabric…  Tricia is never happier than when she is playing around with her dyes and paints… some rather smelly experiments have been happening this summer with sea slugs… they give a wonderful purple dye… the sails on Cleopatra’s boat were said to be purple…

The family also have an allotment where a few strawberries… some rhubarb… or the odd onion or two can be found however, there are other more unusual plants to be found growing…. woad… madder… St John’s Wort to name but a few… Tricia has a ‘dye’ garden…

Tricia, her husband Sean together with their two sons run ‘realstaithes.com’… if you like the outdoors & walking then this is for you…

any questions you would like to ask … please do… contact Tricia
