Eco-dyeing with local windfall plants is a fun way of getting natural colours in fibre without the use of chemicals. It is interesting and amazing to see what emerges from the pot. If left outside in the weather for an undetermined length of time, the results are always a surprise.
This a concoction of pomegranate, maple leaves, marigolds in an Aussie tin billy can (usually used for boiling water on an open fire when camping). The fibres are raw silk, corriedale roving, tussah silk and some linen.
This one is a cast iron camp oven and the contents look decidedly unpleasant. Acacia leaves, wrapped linen cloth around liquid amber pods and some corriedale roving. Not sure how this is going to turn out. It looks like sludge, but smells rather pleasant due to the native leaves.
Will let you know how these turn out.
