Eco dyeing workshop

Various things happened in May, lots of them involved plants.
One of my highlights was attending a 2 day ecodyeing workshop with Australian textile artist Gina Mastio. Held in the Royal Botanical Gardens, it was a wonderful experience watching the mostly foraged plant matter being transformed into colourful jars in the Autumn sunlight. The workshop looked at submersion dyes and ecoprinting with plants, here's a peak:
