Wool bundles dyed in cochineal overnight included my fat dumpy tube: a piece of old blanket,
Also steamed overnight was my larger version of the wool etamine/eucalyptus, shown here in front of larger eucalyptus and cochineal scarves,
First day of the show, the traffic outside the virtual studio increased exponentially, later in the day it was packed and people were leaning against the glass. Tomorrow, this too will be open to the public, with demonstrations of a variety of techniques
In todays session , I mainly concentrated on using old linens like the onion skins and pomegranate on this section of damask tablecloth using iron and copper mordant
Loved the marks of oak, maple, brambles and roses on this old beige embroidered tablecloth soaked in iron.
Some of my pieces including some silk chiffon and cotton gauze were still wet at the end of the session so are currently drying in my hotel bathroom - smells quite herbal in there.
