natural dye process
Natural dyeing involves observation, walking, gathering Through fields, along roadsides, in my own garden The simmering and soaking, the hanging out on the line, the ironing....these are domestic processes. Natural dyes connect me to an earlier time, when we depended more on our own intuitive knowledge and on recipes given to us by others. they are slow The colours produced are entirely different from chemical dyes. Natural dyeing is connecting me to Manitoulin.
