I am back home , it was really an inspiring weekend. Beautiful warm weather, lots of stitching , experimenting and laughter. And of course lots of color.
The indigo bath was amazing experience, the yarn and fabric were green when they came out of the bath, but exposure to air quickly changed them to indigo.
Do you remember the stitching I did at home?
This one is a piece of silk.
This one i made in Bordeaux, it is on silk. I learned a lot this weekend , silk and linen is much easier to dye than cotton and yarn is much easier than fabric. You saw the yarn absorbing the color immediately, the blue of the yarn was also more intense than on the fabric.
On sunday we did 4 other bath, coreopsis, broom, campeche(i cannot find the english or dutch translation) and madder.
This picture is the coreopsis bath.
The campeche bath
On the line!!!
I made some bags with the fabric dyed in the campeche bath.
And one with the indigo fabric.
