I realized after seeing arounna's beautiful and colorful swatches today that I had not yet posted pictures of my rainbow of fabrics and fiber. Thanks Julie for such a wonderful set of classes. I can't wait to get the supplies I ordered to do some more larger scale dyeing, hopefully before winter. My favorite colors came from the osage, logwood and indigo. I hope to do some more indigo dyeing so I can dip many times to achieve a darker blue shade. I also am very keen to try some of the shibori and dipping techniques using other natural dyes.
logwood cochineal madder osage is the order of the dyed fiber
I love that piece of silk first dyed in osage after mordanting with alum and tartar and then overdyed with indigo. The other fibers dyed above are cotton, linen, silk, wool felt, vintage crochet cotton for some future covered stones, merino wool roving, unspun cotton and some vintage linen with lace.
I have many more specific images of the indigo / shibori class results but I will save them for tomorrow to give me a little more time to talk about my inspirations.
