my latest work

lost colour

a collection of weave designs in linen, abaca/paper and viscose yarns from Filpucci of Italy

tonal contrasts between matt and shiny, rough and smooth
a primary palette of colour from vegetal dyes – weld, madder, logwood from sustainable sources
to create rich earthy hues inspired by the beautiful Maiwa film ‘In search of Lost Colour” and the workshops I attended at the ISEND Natural Dye Symposium in France, April 2011
