NATURAL DYEING

The dyeing techniques require no chemicals and I perform the art of dyeing in

iron, copper and aluminium pots as mordants.

 

The natural materials are foraged from our property and the local area.

Protein fabrics, such as silk and wool, are perfect for botanical prints.

Cellulose fabrics, like linen and cotton, require some extra alchemy.

Collecting

Windfall leaves collected to leave a memory of themselves forever.

magical prints

Nature creates, I arrange.

Wrap´n Roll

All bundled up and ready to go.

The

secret

essence

Copper and iron pots, 

a hot fire pit whispering steam

creates alchemy on the fabrics.

add indigo 

An indigo organic vat

is always close at hand

to create a hue of blue.

A suprise

every

time

The fragrance and patterns

revealing themselves

is always a stunning moment.
