Jan brought along her latest explorations in natural dyeing. This scarf was dyed with onion skins and rusty metal. The metal effectively added ferrous to the bath, making the colours darker.
It's so delicate and subtle, so it's hard to photograph, but so beautiful.
Her second scarf was dyed with teabags, red cabbage, in a bath of onion skins and rusty metal.
It's also quite subtle but has a quite obvious pattern on it from the red cabbage.
She also brought along some more naturally dyed cards. The leaf patterns are subtle and lovely.
Finally, she layered cotton lawn pieces with silk in between and stitches a pattern with the sewing machine. The cloth was dyed in a red napthol bath.
Maz was working on a piece inspired by Highways and Byways by Paul Klee, which she's doing with another group of friends.
It's hand painted silk, with simple hand stitching so far. The colours are just gorgeous.
