Dyeing to show off

For a variety of reasons I haven’t taught a workshop for almost a year.  When a group of friends asked me for a dyeing day, I agreed with a little trepidation, worried I may be too tired or forget what I was supposed to be doing blah blah.

We dyed a light to dark set.  Then a gradiation from one colour to another.  By this stage they had run out of fabric, so I pulled out some of mine and showed a few techniques that put deliberate marks on the cloth.  Showing off a bit, I admit it!

I demonstrated how to make a landscape without trying too hard – is it a field with trees, mountains and sky?  Or is it a riverbank with trees?  Same piece, you decide.  I haven’t seen all the fabric washed and ironed so there are still a couple of surprises waiting for me but so far everyone seems to have enjoyed the dyeing and I may have set one or too back on the path to creating their own fabric. Me?  I got such a happy rush from teaching that I am now convinced I am ready to get back to work.   Happy days :):)
