Printing fun with natural dyes

Yesterday was great fun with my friend Kate Poland from Cordwainers Grow. We have begun to experiment with natural dyes that we can grow/source locally and use them for printing. The first session was not successful – the blind leading the blind – but this second one progress was made! Just look at this…

Lots of experiments – timings – mixing – and mistakes, but we had some results after 1 hour

So now we have a basic formula the next stage is technique – we will keep you posted! As a parting gift here are some stencils I tried that are drying.
