My natural dyeing class at the Workroom just ended on Monday and I came home with beautiful hand dyed fabrics. Dyeing used to seem so intimidating to me because of all the chemicals and procedures involved, but Julie just made it so easy. I don't understand most of the chemical reactions that happen in natural dyeing but I think I'm good at following recipes. It's kind of like cooking, you just need to know what ingredients to use. We also got to experiment with shibori, which I find so fascinating, since every piece comes out to be a total surprise.
When I have my apartment set up, I hope to sew these into summer shirts and dresses. I have so many ideas already.
Happy Friday+ weekend to you!
