At the last Metaphor meeting we did a spot of dyeing using fibre reactive dyes on cotton, silk, scrim, hessian and cotton/synthetic mixes.


Bearing in mind that the next item I make will be under the theme of Midsummer Night’s Dream, I chose woodland colours. I’m thinking forest, tree bark, lichens, can you see it?


I’ve been carding wool in mixes of greens and browns and will show you the pot as it develops – there’ll be more to it than just the felting.
