Silver Tree

I have been working on an art piece for our extraTexture Exhibition in August. I have manipulated photos in Photoshop and printed sections on cotton, silk and organza. The pieces were backed and then stitched together and someĀ free machine embroidery to finish it off.

Botanical print fabrics as well

India Flint made this process famous when she did her Masters (?) degree and subsequently published her book ‘EcoColour’.

I will have fabric for sale at our up coming exhibition, where I have added my own twist to the ‘colour’ aspect

botanical print scarves

Botanical printing is a very serendipitous occupation, with results dependant on everything from the water one uses to the weather and season of leaf collection, to the Eucalypt species and even the side of the tree the leaves have come from. I collect leaves as either fresh or dried windfalls. Botanical printing then involves bundling the leaves and fabric together and subjecting them to pressure and steam.

I will have a lovely selection of silk scarves as well as silk fabric lengths for sale. The fabric pieces can be used for dressmaking, patchwork, cushion covers etc etc etc.
