autumn holiday in daylesford

So inspired by wonderful March workshop with India Flint; sometimes a class can be life-changing: having already been starting to learn to construct simple wearable pieces  with cloths woven on the Saori loom, India’s  Second Skin class taught me that I can make simple garments stitched by hand with lovely natural or recycled fabrics, then dye them  in the ways I have been learning to do, with plants and natural mordants; a meditative and gentle process that feels totally right to do, and causes no harm. 224 more words
