I’ve been experimenting with naturally dyeing yarn, which is both fun and doesn’t hurt my sad, nervy wrist (which is healing, yay). I love how they all look together! From top to bottom in the weaving: plain, yellow onion skins, green tea, red onion skins, black tea, turmeric, and hibiscus tea. I’m going to teach my art camp kids how to do this over the summer :)
Out of all the woven textiles I’ve made, this one arguably has the most depth to it, which makes it difficult to photograph and capture the nuances seen throughout. This piece was dyed and woven last year during a turbulent and unsteady time. I was finally able to document it on this trip. Here are a few detailed shots of this cloth; dyed with insects, tree bark, minerals and roots.
