So I have been thinking recently that I really want to refine my dyeing processes and knowledge of natural dyes....especially the use of local natural dyes. This has inspired me to dedicate some time over the next few months (whilst I wait for my baby to be born!) towards investigating natural dyes and expanding my dye knowledge and process.
I have lots of notes from the ISEND (International Symposium and Exhibition on Natural Dyes)conference last spring in La Rochelle so I will be revising some of the information I discovered there.
Also thinking much more about working with nature. Here is a very interesting dye process that I have come across on the net. It has inspired me to not only try out some location dyeing but also to investigate the properties of using sea water as a mordant.
