Collaboration

This is your chance to own and wear a little bit of Tasmania! My new ‘Ghosts of Autumn’ collection is based on an eco print I did on rice paper, using an oak leaf collected during my recent artist residency in New Norfolk. AND my first 10 customers will also receive a $25 gift card. How good is that? The result of my collaboration with nature and ShopVida.

and understorey 2

there were 3 dye pots – brown onion skins, red onion skins and wild cherry

i painted egg yolk directly onto cotton fabrics in places before dyeing them

i also painted leaves and sliced avocado seeds with egg yolk, then layered them between cotton fabrics, rolling them up and tying them before simmering in dye for several hours

some are now waiting to be stitched

some were stitched before they went in the dye pots

some were stitched afterwards
