very hot- you need potholders to move this
this I am proud of.
after the workshop with the actors my fingers were itching for something to do, so I made a little mini woollen scarfthing on a small frame loom. I used yarn I had dyed myself, experiments that had turned out mainly tannic subcolour. I then spent half the night fulling it between my fingers and palms till it was properly felted, like a shepherds cape, real hard, then I bundled it up around a moroccan souvlaki stick with eucalyptus leaves collected from Koumoundourou square and some cotton fabric purchased in the area and simmered it in a tea of oak bark and more eucalyptus. I let it stand in the sun for a couple of days and then I got impatient and unbundled it.
I am very pleased with it. now for the large frame loom.....
and maybe mud
lesson of the day
never browse the internet while dyeing. your house may burn down.
do not leave dye projects alone, they might get creative.......
