Natural dyes

Posted by

Woven shibori in all its forms is another branch on that tree, and I continue to play with it. But getting back to the natural dye path, Catharine mentioned to me while I was taking the dye class at HCC that The Dyeworks was in Longmont, CO when I told her I had to miss a week of class because I'd be teaching a workshop in Denver. So I scheduled a private 3-day workshop while I was in the area. I dyed a lot of yarn. Years later I wove some of it into a piece of yardage. I can't remember if it went to Convergence, but it did hang in the Blue Ridge Fiber Show. Don't ask me what year...
It was also paired with an ikebana piece at an annual Black Mountain Center for the Arts exhibit. The almost black yarn is natural brown cotton dipped in indigo several times.

The warp is really straight; the curve is an optical illusion.
