Playing with Eco dying, Exhibition & Kilkenny Arts Week.

Is it just me but the Summer seems to be flying by, here we are three quarters of the way through July, glorious weather, workshops happening, spinning being done but very slowly with a lot of vm removal and I mean a lot along with tons of combing before spinning and for once I really am not enjoying it, though on the bright side hopefully a friend will have some yarn which she can knit something with. I have been playing around with Eco/natural dying something I don’t usually do but I wanted to felt light scarves, so with having plenty of white I hit the onion and eucalyptus trail.  The first was a merino combed with mulberry silk on chiffon incorporating lots of silk throwsters at the ends, the second was ponge with cashmere and I personally was very pleased with the results. Both I’m going to find extremely hard to put up for sale. Anyway that’s what I’ve been upto and coming up don’t forget if you want a trip to Tramore my exhibition of landscape work and pictures starts at the Coastguard Gallery on the 13th August, at the same time I’ll be partaking in Kilkenny Arts week. Oh and there is something else looming. I just need to finalise the details, more next week. Leaving you with Eco dyed pics.

About Anita Marnell Fibre Art

My passion for wool and natural fibres has led me to fall in love with felting and spinning. Every item I create is a surprise, texture, shape and colour all blending into natural creations.
