Fabric Dyeing Collaboration

Monday my friend Peggy and I did some experimenting dyeing fabric and using various chemicals and other things to see the effects they would have on the dyes.




I am going to share just a few of the pieces we created with you.


I was particularly impressed with this piece.


This one gave some unique results we didn’t usually get with the chemical we used on it.


We worked well together. Peggy would say I wonder what would happen if ……. and I would go and find if! We used “if” on this piece.


We both thought this one reminded us of watermelon. All it needs are seeds!

All of these are Peggy’s work.

I am not going to go into the chemicals, etc  we used at this time. I think we need to evaluate our results before we share them.

These are just a small sample of what we did and I will have more so stay tuned.

None of these were shibori dyed.

No 2 is my favourite! It reminds me of the ancient animal rug in the Pazyryk grave in Central Asia.

Thank you Kay! This was such fun and held such delightful surprises. Especially the "parfaits." I love it when you think something is a bust and it just turns around and proves you wrong!
