To prepare the workshop taught by Irit Dulman, we went to the Forest-Abboretum to pluck sorts of euc leaves and the yellow flower Camomile Dyer
Make sure all in good order
Lots of leaves, euc, Casuarina, guava, oak, maple...
The yellow flowers are so yummy.....
We're kind to nature. The snails attached under the petals were set free. We picked them out and put them back to the flower field before we soaked the flowers in alum.
Students each done a few bundles with different methods and mordants
Opening bundles are always excited.
Prints on this cotton top are so fine and detailed.
Bundles of these in purple dye pot are waiting to open.
Effect on cotton with fine outlines
Casuarina and the yellow Camomile Dyer are bold and strong with iron.
Such great experiments with different skills and different come out.
I'm glad for the chance of meeting some Facebook friends here in Israel.
Thank you so much for Irit Dulman's excellent organising for her wonderful workshop with a bunch of lovely ladies. I learnt the new skills and happy to share a session with them.
My big project is going on. What's it? Stay tuned.
