Another summer course at Capellagården has ended. People, patterns, materials and a lots of colours – all in a joyful mix! We have tried different materials and medias and made patterns with dyes, stamps, plants and the sun. Thanks a lot to all the participants and to Estelle who assisted me during the week. And see you next summer! Check out www.capellagarden.se in the beginning of 2020 for more info.
Colours of nature! In the middle of the process of dyeing all the shirts that the test pilots has sent us for “The shirt project”. Piece by piece a weave of stories, shapes and shades appears. Mordanting, piece dye and prepare all the dye pigments is time consuming but also very fulfilling. If you are interested to grow, collect or forage different peals or plants pls. send an email.
