I´ve been looking at natural dye substances at an online shop rather greedily this afternoon... - do you know what "Blauholz" is in English?
Ger - I think it's 'logwood'. It tends to give striking purples but I never got blue from it. here are my notes about it with some interesting comments from others
I love indigo, can't wait to see what you make with it.
dorothy miller's book is excellent. she was an excellent and generous teacher as well. you'll love it!
I live in the south of France near a garden especially dedicated to "tinctoriales plants" (sorry, my english is very approximative). If you are interested, contact me.
I would really like to learn how to dye with indigo. but the amount of knowledge and patience you need is daunting, so promised myself I will only start working with it myself if I have a good book and had workshops ànd teachers. so untill that day, I enjoy from a distance. :)
Fiona - thanks! If all goes well, there could be some blue this summer.Velma - she comes across as a good teacher in the book. How lucky you met her!clothogancho - that must be a fascinating place to visitElis - you're right, it's not an easy dye but I can't resist - what if it works this time? :) Having a teacher would definitely help.
i bought some natural dyes a couple weeks ago to experiment with. including indigo. i always just dive into new stuff. hope i can swing it this time.good luck!
wow! how exciting. such a fabulous process. i look forward to following your experiences with indigo.
