Weekend at the Castletower of IJsselstein.

We had our last weekend long event of this year on the 10th and 11th of September at the Castletower of IJsselstein. The days where mostly dry and sunny. But during the night the weather got so bad that we deciced to go home. This was a first in all the years we are doing Living History. Luck was on our side. Because when we came back Sunday morning nothing was really damaged.

Folker was making candles

Remco was casting pewter.

Ariane was doing sprang and nalebinding.

And I was dyeing with natural dyes. Weld with iron sulfate (green)on Saturday. And walnut husks (brown)on Sunday. Both cloths turned out nicely so I can make new costumes this winter.
