more natural dye print samples...
As with many textile techniques, this natural printing process that I'm developing has proven to be very time consuming. All the more reason to love it, I say.
I'm pretty excited to be in a place to say that. When I started the textiles program at Capilano University four years ago I was very production minded. I wanted to find a way to make multiples of things in the most efficient way. That's also linked to the fact that I saw myself developing a product line of some sort. So, that's not to say I wouldn't want efficiency to be a factor if I do have a product based textile business one day. Today I'm just happy to be able enjoy the process of natural dyeing and printing and celebrate its richness.

hi janna, i got your web site address from katie at the window shop. i was asking her whether she knew any aboriginal woman who could teach me about indigenous plants to use in dyeing. the images you have above, the beautiful scarves, and your knitting project are all so, so interesting to me.
