Indigo

I was very lucky to be able to do some organic indigo dyeing for a whole day this weekend. Loved it so much.

A great big thanks to Jo Kinross at creativejourneys.co.nz for an amazing day.

Back to work

After my long summer break, this week I dressed the loom in some brightly coloured cotton stripes.

So enjoyed the rhythm of weaving again, and that lovely feeling when I cut fresh fabric off the loom.

This length will become a set of soft and gentle washcloths very soon. It’s good to be back.

Rata Joy

This rich, vibrant colour combination was inspired by my daughter who is now a young adult- who is passionate about social issues and dives right into whatever she does in life.

When I offered to weave her a scarf for the cold winter months at university, she immediately said ‘yes please-red please’

I loved weaving these variegated stripes of crimson, red, rust, hot pink, burgundy, teal, gold.

There were four slightly different scarves made from the same warp length. One went to my daughter, so now there are three left – one here, one at the Little Beehive Co-op and the another at the Wow gallery, Nelson. Made from soft natural fibres -merino, alpaca, silk and cotton – plus a little bit of man made yarn for some sparkle.
