While I was at Woolfest I bought some fabulous fibres
and silk string with the intention
of getting back to my roots.
I loved dyeing and paper making as a textiles student
a very long time ago....hmmmmmm
I found a great local supplier for dye
would highly recommend - very helpful.
I have dyed some silk string which its think lends
itself to another alternative to bakers twine?
Have a close up look - very lovely stuff.
I have also had a go at silk paper making
which is far quicker than making
and I love it!
It's been pretty wet here so have been looking for
different things to do with the kids.
We have had a lot of fun.
These are my attempts
to check I could do it first.
Hopefully will get photo's of their creations tomorrow
to put on their blog!
