Colours💖 Feeling like an alchemist, botanist and witch all at once - using plants, minerals, bark, vegetables and flowers to continue to experiment with natural dyeing on silk.
The colours that can be achieved from these natural elements are incredible and I'm hoping that over time this process will eventually replace the more synthetic paints and materials used in my practice.
It's been really humbling and exciting to learn something new from scratch, work with a slower pace and process, and to use my hands to make again, instead of working at a computer. There is also a nice element of surprise, every plant will give a slightly different color each time you dye it on fabric. Happy Monday 🌿🌻🌺
