Recently I have been looking at how to develop printed fabrics depicting some of my favorite items. I love the look of folded handkerchiefs and abstract paper designs used in 1960s photo albums. Here are some samples I created at East London Printmakers over the summer.

Naturally dyed fabric and silk thread samples displayed with items from my vintage paper collection. These fabrics were created at Claire Wellesley-Smith's workshop in Shipley, Yorkshire. We used plants from Claire's dye garden to create these beautiful colours.
a. Cotton and silk dyed with marigold (The colour of the silk fabric is very similar to the old ribbon shown in the photograph)
b. Silk and cotton dyed with woad.
c. Cotton dyed with elderberry.
