Kathy Hays’ Eco Print Video Workshop and Experimenting on Raw Silk from Koza Han

I keep writing about Kathy Hays’ video eco print workshop in my recent experiments with eco printing and natural dyeing, so I thought I’d post a You Tube video taster of the workshop.

eco-print-iii-on-raw-silk-from-bursa-9-february-2017In my next blog I’m going to write more about recent experiments on raw silk purchased in the Koza Han (silk market) in Bursa, Turkey, using Kathy’s basic bundling technique.

The image to the left is one of the suite. Some of the more interesting marks came from leaves I’d left (hmm – accidentally) to soak in ferrous sulphate solution for a week.

I’ll be arranging more of these accidents, oxymoronically, in future. As long as you survive it, an accident is a gift in disguise.

Enjoy the video.
