A good dyeing day was had by all and it was great to see what everyone else produced!  I tried Ice Dyeing (pictured here)  This is a very quick, simple method.  Simply crumple fabric into a bowl.  Drop lots of ice cubes on top.  And then randomly sprinkle Dylon dye powder over the ice cubes.  Leave for several hours until ice cubes melt .... and hey presto ... dyed fabric!  The results are mixed..but can be very subtle, with a mottled effect.  Of course you could also do a 2nd/3rd layer....worth trying!
