Yesterday …

 
So pleased with this eco printed rice paper! Red rhododendron flowers with red or brown onion skins; rolled up and tied around a piece of old fence paling (left), or an iron spring (remaining papers). Sheets first dipped in tea; steamed for 1.5 hours.

Foraging

  
Enjoyed gathering materials for eco dyeing while Ian did some work on our house. Wild flowers, fungi and a marauding insect also make an appearance! A beautiful spring afternoon.

Having fun!

A short video.

After a pleasant Sunday afternoon spent foraging on our block of land, the ‘harvest’ released its colour and patterns in unexpected ways on fabric and paper. To see more, please visit www.gonerustic.com.
