This is what’s been keeping me busy for the last while. But it’s like an iceberg - the pretty pictures are just 1/10th of what goes into planning workshops! 🌿
Posted @withrepost@mamiesschoolhousecapebreton These are some of the workshops that will be taught by Mamie’s Schoolhouse this Summer and Fall on beautiful Cape Breton Island. Details will be posted soon at the link in our profile, where you can also sign up to be notified of the launch of the 2018 workshop calendar. It’s going to be a fun, hands-on, ecological feast of natural fibre goodness!

Helping out today at a wonderful local gallery, Victoria County Creates, and taking advantage of the opportunity to photograph some of my work that I forgot to capture before handing it off. Doh!

I was so over-tired the other day that I accidentally soaked both my cloth and my carrier cloth in a dilute iron solution. I didn’t realize what I’d done until I was unbundling. It looked like an overly dark mess at first, but after drying and an iron, I’m warming to it. I’m amazed at the deep purple hues coming through the Cranesbill, and the whole effect reminds me of an old English chintz.

Busy preparing lesson plans and materials lists for a range of sustainable fibre arts workshops this Summer and Fall!

Posted @withrepost@mamiesschoolhousecapebreton Are you a weaver? Do you do rug-hooking, embroidery, knitting, crochet or lace-making?

This Summer on glorious Cape Breton Island you can learn how to dye your own yarns and threads using the gorgeous hues waiting to be discovered inside plants from your garden and the roadside, and with techniques that are all-natural and sustainable.

Learning to prepare, dye, and finish your yarns/threads properly, and which plants to use and how to prepare them, means that an endless array of colours is available to you, and the results will be lightfast and washfast, and ready to be crafted into your own beautiful creations.

Cellulose (e.g. cotton, linen, bamboo) and protein (e.g. wool, alpaca, silk) fibres are molecularly quite distinct from one another and, therefore, need to be treated quite differently throughout the natural dye process. Classes in both will be taught through Mamie’s Schoolhouse.

Posted @withrepost@mamiesschoolhousecapebreton The ancient Japanese art of shibori can involve a lot of specialized equipment, and there are certain resist results that definitely require it.
But there are many beautiful effects you can achieve with simple, household objects.

This was created with folds and the use of clothes pegs and paint stir sticks to block off certain sections of the cloth during dyeing.

You can sign up to receive notification of Mamie’s Schoolhouse’s full course calendar through the link in our profile. How to prepare and use an #organic #indigo vat, and create beautiful #shibori effects, will be taught this Summer on #capebretonisland.

This Summer, Mamie’s Schoolhouse will be teaching how to make an organic indigo vat, and various foundational shibori techniques, on Cape Breton Island. Stay tuned.

Posted @withrepost@foreverbrigit Frozen shibori. We’ve had our third big melt since the new year (climate change; there is no history of such crazy January weather in the last 1,000 years), and we’re going to get another massive snow dump tonight as the temperature plummets, so I whipped out to take some pics of some of the pieces I’ve been working while the ground is relatively snow-free. Everything was still a bit damp, so the cloth instantly froze and I had to bend the fabric into shape over the clothesline!🙃 #shibori #persicariatinctoria #indigo #arashi #itajime #nui #sustainabletextiles #ecologicaltextiles #dyedbyhand #mamiesschoolhouse #foreverbrigit #naturaldyersofinstagram #plantdye

Made a super soft and elegant dress in our OEKO TEX solid double gauze along with a cord belt.. Just can't take it off. I think I may also need a red and a mustard version :) #doublegauze #fabricshop #ecologicaltextiles #oekotex

Quite often when I scour my thrift store finds, the synthetic dye washes away, leaving a pretty neutral background. But the super soft pure merino wool sweater from which I made these wrist warmers retained it’s pretty soft blue which, I think, is a lovely background for my leaf prints and embroidery (thread dyed with madder). #ecoprint #printingwithplants #contactprint #leafprint #dyedwithplants #foreverbrigit #organic #surfacedesign #sustainabletextiles #ecologicaltextiles #inspiredbynature #naturaldyersofinstagram #slowmade #handmade #ilovecbcraft #vccreates #wearableart #upcycle #thriftstorefind
