Another day of dyeing and painting!

You will all be pleased to know that I shall not be going to Committed to Cloth for a few more weeks! But today, Monty and I set off at 6.45 am to do battle with the traffic and go to Betchworth in Surrey for another lovely day, dabbling and painting with dyes. I needed to catch up with the day I missed in March when I was on crutches and couldn't drive.

I love the barn and it always looks vibrant and exciting>

Apart from the beauty of the barn itself, the textiles are constantly changing.  Today I was working with other students who are following a course of independent study.  They are all much more advanced than I am and so I was fascinated at what they were achieving.

Most of the photos I am going to show you are about how the backgrounds to wall hangings are created before stitching:

Finally it is amazing what you can achieve with some string and black dye!

Finally my work is much more ordinary.  I have been working out how dyes look when painted on top of one another. This is the cloth while still painted before being washed out.

Now I intend to put my feet up!
