A week of dye work shops:

  1. Dying natural cloth using procion dyes
  2. Dying synthetic cloths using heat transfer press
  3. Mark making with pigment dyes (also used from screen printing)

Then Thursday was spent at the National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street.  

Some of my drawings of knitted plastic bags reminded me of mosaics and ceramics so I focused in on some of the old pots and fragments of bowls:

These drawings then inspired a couple of experiments using bleach on black dyed cloth (muslin and felt):
