I’m heading north tomorrow to Edinburgh, via various bits of Yorkshire and Tyneside, for a felting workshop with Andrea Noeske-Porada at Hat in the Cat. Very excited at the thought of being able to produce origami felt pieces like this!
I’ve managed to squeeze in a bit of indigo dyeing this week, producing two scarves/stoles. This gold silk dupion is a heavier weight than I normally use, but it took the indigo very well, the colour shading from deep blue on one edge to paler hues of blue-green on the other.
This lighter magenta silk wrap also took the colour well. It’s difficult to see the pattern clearly in the photo because of the transparency of the silk, but it resembles very funky tiger stripes!
I’ll be putting these up in my Etsy shop when I get back from Scotland. Talking of which, there’s a 10% sale on until 14 August to celebrate the end of Mentoring Month. Many of the makers who took part in the mentoring exercise are participating in the sale, so there’s a lovely range of items – go and have a look! The discount code is MMSALE – happy shopping!
