a grey day in translation
Another grey day inspired a coastal view where reflected sunlight turns silver and the sky is over-hung with a dark canopy. Here the seaweed covered shore-line is slippy and four legs are better than two :)
I've just spent a happy hour looking through some of the wonderful books available on natural dyeing on Amazon, and wondered what other peoples favourites are? I love technical information when it comes to processes like that, chemical and alchemical, as you can't see what happened in order to get there in the final result. Enjoying evolving processes I'm after another learning spell so have reawakened the interest in dyeing with plants. This has particularly been because I can find very few sources of machine embroidery fine pure silk to work with and thought that I should dye my own. Any recommendations?
I shall let you in on the books when I get them :)
