A Frenzy of Dyeing & Printing

The Dyeing to Paint group met today with various ideas of what they might do and a flurry of activity with fabric dyes and print blocks produced some wonderful pieces of work.

There was quite a bit of printing with Indian print blocks and considerable interest in a new brick wall stencil…

The chance to dye fabric was also popular. Ann was busy dyeing fabric to sell for charity

With a focus beyond paint Hilary was absorbed in creating fabric book covers – which looked very nice indeed!
