Dyeing to Resist the Fold at Sunspace

On a beautiful sunny day we gathered and I facilitated some fast and furious Shibori techniques using local natural dyes. The dyes were prepared in the two weeks prior,  I gathered Citrus leaves from a day of pruning, turmeric had just died off and was ready for harvest, a branch of eucalyptus that I had been saving from a storm a while ago, good old faithful red onion skins and Zig Zag wattle seeds.

As this was all about the resist, I really wanted colours that would make it easy for the participants to see what they had achieved. We used Silk fabrics and a tiny bit of wool, and covered everything from folding, stitching and clamping to pole twisting. Everyone worked at a cracking pace, and by the time the sun was high in the sky…. a beautiful array of individual samples emerged.
