Stick Weaving

Lee has created a mat by weaving together her hand-spun and dyed wool.  The mat was woven on a stick weaving loom and then stitched together.  The hand woven wool was dyed various colours using black beans, onion peels, turmeric, avocados and flowers.  The result is a very thick, unique and rustic mat.

Sukrita’s Amazing Natural Dyeing

This is a stunning piece of dyeing by Sukrita.  She took a sock blank, which is superwash so no felting in the washing machine.  She soaked it in an alum bath for the mordant, then laid it out and placed gum leaves, carrot slices and hibiscus flowers along the fabric.  She then rolled up the fabric and boiled it.  It looks absolutely amazing.
