I went back to basics and tried some paper stencil ‘stripes’ to play around with colour and layering. It was messy but I really liked the results so I’ll be refining the process for future use.
Its easy to get bogged down in being efficient with my screens and colours and how I use them, which is of course important, but not all the time. It was good just to have a play and experiment. Paper stencils only last so long before they get too soggy to use which makes the print run pretty small and unique. The opposite of efficient, but an idea I’m excited about.
I’ve been working on these over winter and now they are in store at Craft Victoria. They are a gorgeous silk twill, 90 x 90cm square scarf with a brush stroke check design. I love working with dyes because you can overlap colours to achieve a new colour or depth of colour that isn’t possible with pigment.
We had a photo shoot the other day and I’m really pleased with the results.
Finally some decent photos so I can show off my latest cushions, which are now on sale at Craft Victoria.
Thank you to Brianna, the renaissance woman who spent so much of her valuable knitting time taking these .
See her work at Jack Knits
