If I were a painter I would have books full of sketches… but as a dyer I have drawers full of fabric… While learning my craft I make endlessly and here is a beautiful way I can use some of my learning to share… It helps me to be freer with my experiments and playing. I call them Eco Doodles.
The process used is predominantly ‘eco dyeing’ which is a method developed by India Flint, and this is combined with traditional Japanese Shibori folding and bundling techniques. This is overstitched, I have a passion for keeping womens work and hand skills alive. I choose phrases and word plays that keep me amused while I stitch. Other times I just stitch without intention and see what comes up, its very hard to ‘randomly’ stitch the rhythm of the process always seems to draw me into wanting to be precise.
