Hello Everyone and welcome to February’s gathering of Textiles on this, our second Textile Tuesday Photo Challenge of 2020.
Have you got any textiles you are working on, or have you found any when out and about? Archive posts are welcome.
Just leave a link in the comments to join in.
In another life I would be a Lichenologist
I still can’t leave Rust Dyeing alone. The serendipitousness (? !) of it has taken me hostage and will not let me go!
It is so tempting to just keep dyeing, the results are so exciting but at last I have three finished pieces to share with you.
The rust-dyed Mulberry Paper in the first piece reminded me of tree bark.
The second one, using rust-dyed curtain lining, reminded me of the desert scenes my son sent me when he was running in the Sahara.
The third became a lament for the devastation created by the recent fires in Australia. The turquoise represents hope and water and new life returning.
After the Fire
I am thinking of painting the background canvas for this one an Uluru Red.
Eventually they will all be for sale, I am working towards getting enough together for an exhibition. When I say ‘working towards’ – the main work to be done is getting my mind round the whole idea of exhibiting and all that goes with it, but I would like to see my work all presented together somewhere, sometime. It will happen when the time is right.
I am really looking forward to seeing the Textiles you would like to share with us on
