Bring back the HIPPY SIXTIES ! ! !


This workshop at my place was a blast for 3 days


my garden becomes a sea of blue


and what are these contraptions ?


Shibori textile artist Jane Callender from the UK that explains it 

even my carport became a hype of industry with the ATASDA group


Indigo vats appear near my entrance

I started my silk & wool sarong piece with some stitching for resist


 here the piece is dyed in weak Indigo solution, then tied with string


after dipping in the strong Indigo dye


 
VOILA ! patterns are revealed after rinsing, removing stitches & string
the sarong is folded over the line to show how it will look for a caftan

I'm organising  for ATASDA this year
