After two hours of ironing, the fabrics are dry and ready to use:
My approach to hand-dyeing isn’t very knowledgeable or scientific, nor is it particularly ‘arty’. I know there are some purists out there who think that the intuitive, experimental approach can never be ‘proper art’ because there has to be some serious and statemented intention to begin with. Well, my intention was just to colour some fabric. Purists, look away now – I just mixed up some colours, put them in a bag with some fabric and left them for a while to see what would happen. However, I do think it’s possible to take this approach while still maintaining due respect for the cloth and the process. I will probably never be one of the world’s master-dyers, but that’s OK. I do it purely for the satisfaction and enjoyment of it.
