Attempts to improve my dyeing skills are still ongoing. My favourite part of the process is collecting the swatches of dyed fabric and compiling them in a sketchbook. Details of the dyeing process and water/powder ratios sit alongside said swatches and the occasional splash of accidental colour. Forget the final result, this is by far more fun! The whole thing is becoming quite time consuming (and messy) but I’m sure worthwhile. It doesn’t help that I am being incredibly fussy but hopefully I will have something to show you soon. Until then, I wanted to share a collection of images which have been inspiring me over the past few weeks.
