A catch-up exercise, having found lots of work I haven’t kept a record of on this blog. Last year I did an online course with Elizabeth Barton on various aspects of dyeing cloth for quilt-making. I didn’t get round to actually making any quilts, but I was particularly interested in Elizabeth’s methods for arashi dyeing (wrapping fabric around a pole, scrunching up tightly and then dyed.
I’ve been doing some trials of shibori dyeing with Procion dyes, prior to doing some indigo dyeing with Ann. I have also been researching methods of dyeing before my trip to Japan next month when I intend going to Arimatsu.
At the end of August I had the wonderful experience of attending a workshop with India Flint at “les Soeurs Anglaises” (lots more photos on their site) in France.
