Title: Tidy-up in lockdown  

Not wanting to waste a fibre, I have a box of odds and ends leftover from previous projects.  This year I have used natural dyes including indigo, Woad, Logwood and Saxon blue to create an exciting range of blues. This abstraction entitled Tidy-up in Lockdown showcases the kaleidoscope of fabrics and fibres from my odds and ends box.   

 

Materials and Techniques 

Wet felting, Hand-dying, stitch,  wool, silk, cotton
