We had a great time making red/pink colors from the last workshop in Bryn Athyn. We used
madder root, cochineal and did a sample with brazil wood and used an alum mordant and an
iron buff mordant.
From left to right we used cochineal, madder (top) with alum mordant and madder
(bottom) with iron buff. Then brazil wood (top) with alum mordant and brazil wood
(bottom) with iron buff.
We tied both alum and iron mordanted pieces while we waited for the cochineal
(below images), madder and brazil wood to steep.
The best part is always unwrapping the present!
The dog of the yard was territorial of the dyed pieces.
Come play at our yellow workshop Nov. 29th!
We had an awesome time at Kremer Pigments for our indigo workshop. We have a couple
more fall courses to sign up for still, one other in NY at The Horticultural Society of
New York and a Yellow themed workshop in Bryn Athyn, PA. Checkout these pics from Kremer!!
We had a very successful and fun time dyeing blues last weekend in Bryn Athyn. We focused on using a naturally
fermenting indigo vat and also experimented with making deep blues with Logwood. Shibori and Itajime
techniques were practiced as well and the group made some great discoveries!
The Logwood ended up looking almost black/blue on silk and wool and a blue/purple on cotton
Everybody came up with very intricate patterns!
