An Amazing Weekend!!!

An Amazing Weekend!!!

Oh no what has happened to this week. Its almost over and I haven’t shared what I did last weekend!

Well I was very lucky to attend an Eco Dyeing and Weaving course taught by the amazing Anne at www.anniesworkroom.com.au held at the Cooroora Institute www.cooroorainstitute.org this really is a place you must check out.

And what is Eco Dyeing? Its lots of fun  is what it is 🙂 We dyed beautiful silk scarfs using  flowers, gum leaves, weeds and anything else we could get our hands on. I especially loved using those ugly purple carrots that you see in the organic fruit and veg shops. The colours are really amazing. Now all I want to do it dye all my whites. My husband is hiding his shirts hehe.

We also made nests and string from banana plants. I really enjoyed making the string, but then again I do have a string fetish. I have added a few photos to show you some of the things we made.

this was made dyed with gum leaves, citrus leaves and red gum shavings

These are all samples of different materials, silk, wool, cotton,  and blends. Its amazing how plants , rust and wood take to the different materials.

I just love working with creative people, its the best medicine.

Thank you Anne for openly sharing your wonderful knowledge. I cant wait until the next one.

Happy Creating

Cheers
