Still enjoying exploring in Europe, recently it's been in Spain. With Gaudi, ancient cities like Toledo and Girona and the beauty of mountains with orange groves climbing into olives and almonds before ending in pines and wonderful hiking trails... inspiration is running high.
|Like a spanish 'sound of music' scene...|
And as I have had several inquiries for when the next dye courses will be running, I have put my head into it and come up with a course for February in Sydney.
At a Spanish truck stop I found all of these beauties ready to play with in the dye pot. They will be treasures finding their way home in my backpack. I'm an expensive tourist...
Yesterday I found these walnuts and hulls on the back deck at a friend's house. One of my favourite dyes, rich browns of varying shades. Pity I can't take those home with me.
So, details. One day of dabbling over steamy pots, playing with plant materials, varying fabrics and some bits and bobs such as fore mentioned rusty Spanish treasures... covering the basics of submersion dyes and eco prints and sending you on your way to further experiment and explore these wonderful techniques to make colour and pattern on cloth. You will make lots of samples and dye your own scarf to take home.
Thursday 11th February, 2016. At my home in the north shore, Sydney. $160 for the day, (9.30 am till 3pm) includes materials and a light lunch plus morning tea. Contact me by email for further details and bookings. Very limited places.
