On to my next exciting project....marigolds from our front yard. The color is so vibrant and happy, wondering how it will dye? 🌼 Over the next few weeks I will be dyeing onesies for a lovely friend that just had a baby.

When I added water to the black walnuts, the water instantly turned a deep brown/almost black. I simmered it for 1 hour and then left them to soak overnight. I used muslin fabric to separate the walnuts from the dye. I then added a baby top for dying and simmered again!
So excited to see what develops....

The first time I eco-printed this t-shirt it came out quite faintly. I re-mordanted it and tried dyeing over the top and this time the leaves have come out vibrant and detailed, with so many different colours!

I’ve spent the last month experimenting with nature and fabric dyeing. The slow pace and the beautiful results have bought me so much happiness. 🌾🌿🍂 It’s amazing how much goodness is in your back yard or local park. Even my kids have helped me forage, sourcing acorns, pine cones, marigolds and lots more.  The black walnuts came from a tree in our back yard, they landed with a thud on the deck, sometimes waking us up at night! Watch to see what color they produce....

Today I shared my first short live video of my process. I was cutting the fabric into pieces that will be sewed into pouches soon. Nothing really exciting but I saved this live and you can access it through stories to watch it.
•
Is there anything in particular you would like to see in my live videos? I’m still not comfortable with talking but I’m happy to show you other process videos/home-studio tours/walks through the park. Let me know :)
•
These goldenrod dyed pouches will be available in November. I’m making some small vegan wallets for a collaboration with a local sustainable jewelry brand.

Sweet repeats. Just making simple marks over an eco printed scarf that I dyed back in 2015, in Scotland with @prophet_of_bloom India Flint. The scarf had some lovely subtle areas that are lending themselves well to over printing with simple hand cut motifs. If you like to learn how to print your own designs on fabric using natural dyes, join my online workshop that starts in 2 weeks at NaturalFabricDyeing.com

Natural colours from natural dyes. I love the subtle tones and the diversity of colours that can be achieved from just one source.... in this case walnuts....very soft beiges to deep nut browns and all the tones between too....
Happy weekend.....

I currently have this batch of acorns that I’ve gathered from my driveway in a pot soaking. I’ve heard about #naturaldyeing with acorns but have never given it a try. I’m so excited to see what I can extract ✨🌿

I just started my first natural dye project since downsizing to the tiny house kitchen (although our current kitchen isn't much smaller than the one we had in our rent house). These yellow flowers, called Rabbit's brush, grow all around the lake we live near, so I made sure to forage and freeze a bunch before the frost and deer took the last of this season's growth. .
.
Working with plants always brings up fond memories of my family-- my great-grandmother's sidewalks lined with spring peonies, or my mom waking up early in the summers to tend to her garden. All things I hope to one day do and have. That relationship to the earth and the plants is so grounding.
.
.
Natural dyeing, especially, seems to embody the spirit of "slow living," which is a thing I've been seeking for some time now, and hope that living tiny will be a venue for such. It takes such thought and care and planning to do, and whatever comes of it seem to be that much more special, and it's an activity I'd like to be able to devote more time to.

What "slow" things do you love? Afternoon tea? Reading hour? I hope you'll all share so we can slow down together. 🌻

If I was to tell you that I'm really *really* tempted to call this braid "your mother was a hamster" would you: 
a) be mildly offended and not have a clue what on earth I'm referencing, 
b) think I've totally lost the plot, or 
c) get it immediately and know exactly which dye plant I used?! 🤔 Comment below and let me know if you get it!

The finished paper from yesterday’s post. While the vast majority of flowers (though not all) are highly fugitive as dyes on cloth, they endure much better on paper.  I find it fascinating that the anthocyanins in the hot pink cosmos flowers shift to blue and blue/black with a change in Ph.

Sbucciare, spelare e triturare le ghiande è un lavoro - confesso - lunghissimo e ben poco divertente. Ma guardo il lato positivo: serve a rendere i filati e i tessuti che tingo sempre e solo naturalissimi. Usando materiali naturali innocui e tradizionali chi indosserà quei capi non avrà allergie nè irritazioni. E porterà indosso veramente la Natura.

Foraging foliage to get ready for winter. Full squirrel mode!
.
You might see these leaves in my autumn dye class on Sunday 29th Oct. There are very few spots available.
.
Yesterday I spent the day until late afternoon in hospital, taking tests. Nothing serious! But it was 2 pm before i was allowed to drink water, COFFEE, have food. Had a terrible headache all day, not to mention my mood. So I rewarded myself with an afternoon of work in the garden, no studio, no insta... Brilliant idea!

26 years since lifting that very first skein from the dye pot.

Nothing's really changed.

Natural dyes hold a lifetime of fascination for me.

Litt fargesopp-nerding, for oss som liker sånt: 🍄
.
Av kanelslørsopper man kan farge med, er det blodrød og rødskivet som er mest poppis - fordi det er dem det er mest av, og som gir de rødeste fargene. Og rødt er eksklusivt i plantefargingens verden. Men det er flere. 🍄
.
Her om dagen viste jeg frem rustskivekanelslørsopp-garnet mitt. På samme soppturen fant jeg mahognyslørsopp også - og sånn ble det (førstebadet øverst, andre og tredje bad nederst).
.

På neste bilde er begge to - rustskive øverst og mahognyslørsopp nederst. Ble ganske greie farger av disse soppene også, i hvert fall de to første badene. SÅ fornøyd med at jeg har lært meg noen nye sopper i år, og at jeg kan se forskjell på dem! For de er temmelig like. 🍄
.
Experimenting with #cortinariusphoeniceus (a k a #cortinariuspurpureus) and #cortinariusfervidus. I like them both! 🍄

Last day at Handmade at Kew Gardens tomorrow but it looks like some of my leafy creations will be staying on at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art here at Kew. How very lovely for them 😊 #kewgarden #Leafprint #MyLocalDyePlants #Handcrafted #Slowfashion  #AroundTheWorldin80dyes #shirleysherwoodgallery #handmadeatkew
Yesterday I quit my day job. What made this decision easier? Absolutely nothing. It cost me a lot of tears because I genuinely like my job and because that’s a phase of my life going to an end. But also because change is scary and I don’t have a plan what to do. It was a decision I had to make, though, and while I’m scared, I’m also excited for what’s to come. I still have a few weeks left with the nicest people I’ve met so far, and then I’ll take some time to figure out what it is that makes my heart sing.
•
In case it all sounds too melodramatic - I’m ok and excitement is slightly taking over the fear. It has to settle in me, because architecture was my reality for the past 9 years. And it was fun and I’m sure I’ll be getting back to it sometime.
•
Meanwhile I’m slowly getting back to dyeing and testing new recipes for mordanting. Have you ever seen more vibrant yellow? It was dyed with goldenrod I put in my freezer this summer. The brownish canvas was dyed with eucalyptus bark I brought from my holidays in Greece (quite an unusual souvenir;) and I’m stoked! I still don’t feel like going back to the park where I used to walk my beloved dog every day, but I have enough dye stuff at home to experiment with. And now with a lot of time on my hands I know I will have quite some fun!

Now that I’ve made it through the very successful Fibre Festival, I’m preparing for an invitational artisan craft fair in 4 weeks. I want to include some of my #handmade books, using my botanically printed paper for the covers, so am doing some early thinking re design, type of stitching, etc. It’s a nice break from steaming dye vats (though I adore steaming dye vats). I’m most excited to be using linen thread for the binding that was milled here in Nova Scotia from organic flax also grown in the province, and have waxed the thread myself with organic beeswax from the hives of friends up the road from me. They are a little old school, and don’t use social media, so I’m excited to surprise them with a finished product in the coming days, as they have no idea I’m doing this with their lovely beeswax.

Høsten 2017 går over i historien som et kronår for sopp. Og selvfølgelig - sopp kan man farge med også! Her her jeg farget med rustskivekanelslørsopp - #cortinariusfervidus, en sopp jeg bare fant én gang. Den vokste i en stor gruppe i tett granskog. Første, andre og tredje bad. Fargen ble overraskende lik den man får med usnea/stry - vakkert orangebrun. Artig bekjentskap!

In the month or so since coming home, it’s been hard to find the creative drive to make that I’m so used to living by. I think it’s a combination of coming straight from wild mountain rides on motorbike through remote artisanal villages to a week in bed sleeping off sickness, followed by long days at work.
-
Today I’m finally (maybe it’s the sunshine) getting the urge to dig through unfinished stacks of wool-in-progress, drawing inspiration from the beautiful pieces I brought home from Vietnam, and the richness of our own native materials and plants. -
These mittens are tōtara dyed, and made on a whim with too-large needles - lucky for @liam.muffins they’re now the right size for him, not me!

Any advice on getting over this “maker’s block” would be deeply appreciated ❤️

I think it’s a combination of coming straight from wild mountain rides on motorbike through remote artisanal villages to a week in bed sleeping off sickness, followed by long days at work. - Today I’m finally (maybe it’s the sunshine) getting the urge to dig through unfinished stacks of wool-in-progress, drawing inspiration from the beautiful pieces I brought home from Vietnam, and the richness of our own native materials and plants. - These mittens are tōtara dyed, and made on a whim with too-large needles - lucky for @liam.muffins they’re now the right size for him, not me! - Any advice on getting over this “maker’s block” would be deeply appreciated ❤️ . . . #makersblock  #natureisbest  #slowlife  #imadethis  #fiberartist  #handmadeisbetter  #nothingisordinary  #handgefärbt  #stricken  #capturemycraft  #amonthoflovely  #mylocaldyeplants  #knittersofinstagram

Each of the giant bundles @agillianking created yesterday had a different mood. The detail of this one looks really intense!
.
Everything is still wet though, once dry the colours will be more subtle on this cotton canvas.
.
Amongst others, you see horsetail, onion skins, nails, blue ornamental cherry leaves and acorns. All found by me, most very close to my studio, and onion skins by a very friendly merchant who sells only local onions from Brandenburg, the state surrounding Berlin.

Yesterday was a day of several firsts... mordanting and bundle dyeing the heaviest cotton and linen i ever worked with, with @agillianking. Locally foraged plants left various prints on Gillian‘s canvas, and I am very curious what will become of them! Thank you, Gillian!

I was beyond delighted to receive a copy of the incredibly beautiful and inspiring @plants_are_magic magazine in the mail today, created by the visionary @rebeccadesnos. This issue is all about Local Plants and features my article 'Sacred Landscapes', a personal reflection on my creative process and the intertwining of my creative and spiritual paths. 🌱

Another on the drawing board. Background blueberry and Queen Anne's lace. Leaves pounded from black eyed Susan's. Lace flower dyed with turmeric. Tedious cutting involved. #naturaldye #ecodye #leafpounding #leafhammering #fiberart #textileart #mylocaldyeplants
Super creative play day! Now I’m off to Zumba with my Frida-loving mate Lou (the one on the right a few pics back!) Time to DANCE! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻

I could have created digital graphics for my online workshop website. There are plenty of tricks to help people re-create a hand carved, hand stamped look in minutes but there’s nothing to compare to real lino cut prints. .
These cute little blocks will only be printed once and took me all day to carve but it’s this slower approach to creativity and life that I’d like to encourage in myself and my students.
.
Nothing wrong with utilising the best of both worlds though! These will now be digitised to make graphics for Module 3: Eco Pattern which starts a month today on Monday 6th November at 9am. .

....and the results of my experiment solar dyeing with sour sob/ oxalis are in. Blown away by the almost fluorescent yellow colour I've achieved. Approx 90g soursob flowers in each jar, 50g white Western Australian merino wool roving in each, water and three weeks soaking in the sun. I'm definitely a convert!

I'm so happy to be back home in the mountains, drinking nettle tea, eating dark chocolate and recovering from my holiday! I've just re-activated all the clothes listed in my Etsy shop, including this earthy tshirt dyed with leaves gathered on Ngunnawal country 🍃✨

If you’re on the island for Celtic Colours International Festival, please come check out the incredible fibre works at the Fibre Festival. My island home is blessed with a richness of exemplary artisans, and this festival gives centre stage to those of us who work with fibres of all kinds. If you’re not on the island, I hope to see you here next year! This is one of the fingerless gloves I made from someone else’s stained, cast off cashmere sweater.

After steeping for a month in the summer sun, this dyebath smelled pungently like sage. What a vibrant golden with a hint of green. Cotton dries up several shades lighter, so let's see what happens!

You might have seen in my stories the other day that I've made myself a blending board. I was having a few teething issues (I made a lovely rolag but then couldn't get the sticks out of it! 😂) But I think I've sorted it out and now I've got this gorgeous bunch to spin up! (It's soybean dyed with elderberries)
I'm really excited about the new possibilities this is going to bring! I've already thought up several experiments I want to try out... 😉 Watch this space!

Now back to the fancy schmantzy pics! I scour thrift stores and flea markets for natural fibre sweaters that will end up in landfills (i.e. no-one will buy them as they have holes, stains, etc.) and then, through the awesomeness of plant dye power, convert them into (re)usable scrumptiousness. These are #plantdyed #cashmere sweater sleeves en route to becoming utterly fabulous fingerless gloves.

🍃Today's harvest - grapes for the mouth leaves for the dyepot --- I have never dyed with grape leaves -- perhaps a fellow natural dyer has got some advice, recipes  @myrtle_sweet @rebeccadesnos 😊🍃? Here in the UK it is not very hot so these are small grapes with a sharp taste and a touch of sweetness , grown in a sunny very sheltered spot by our garage, many people use them for winemaking but I love the taste and can't wait to try the leaves to dye with
