Today we’ve been working towards what is alarmingly called our FINAL PIECE. Something tells me that mine is going to be blue. I spent much of the day in the indigo vat, which still stinks, but was moderated by a blackberry dye seething on the ring (yum).
Top to bottom: shibori on cotton; shibori on silk; batik on cotton; batik and paper resist and tying on cotton; shibori and batik on self-striped cream and beige silk; hanks of cotton and wool yarns to right.
I didn’t manage to take photos in the workshop today – too busy. This afternoon I’ve been washing, winding and ironing out wax (good job the ironing board already needs a new cover).
Now it is time to do some homework and prepare the FINAL PIECE. Trouble is, there are at least two things I want to try before the end.
For anybody into such things, I’ve put in some close up photos. Click for the detail.
