sorry for the lack of posts recently, the last couple of months have been filled with intense productivity, some life changes, and little spare time.
this is my first weekend not working in ages (and connected to the internet!) and I wanted to catch up with the world out there by sharing India Flint's beautiful dyer's hands.
dyeing has become such an important element in my life over time.
I have explored many possibilities within dyeing - from the basic fold and dye I learned at school, to more ambitious experiments with reactive dyes.
more recently, I have started to conceive dyeing as a tool to connect with nature and to learn the possibility of colours within plants.
in my recent journeys, I have connected with several women dyers/designers and I am touched by the generosity with which these women are happy to share and be of support to one another: there is a sense that even though some might be on a similar journey, each one is entitled to it.
I hooked up with Ashley in L.A. for a mini dye party (I've always wanted to dye with eucalyptus bark), a few yoga classes (she is training to become a teacher of Iyengar yoga), and general chit chat covering communes, chris o'dowd and everything in between.
