I’ve spent a few days doing some more dyeing so that I can actually make something.
I now have a good spectrum of fine silk organza dyed with avocado skins, red and brown onions, casuarina leaves, purple carrots, pomegranate and some rust and tea.
Another group I belong to, Designing Women, is having an exhibition starting on Thursday 23 October, almost a week after the MELD one, Hidden Revealed Transformed, which opens on Friday 17 October. I’ve done all the work I want to for MELD so have designed something for the DW exhibition, Seams and Layers.
The silk needs to be sheer and it certainly is. It’s the hand woven silk I get from Pollard Designs, which is supporting a Cambodian weaving community. The trick is going to be stitching bojagi seams into it. Fingers crossed and toilet paper ready. [For the seams😃]
