Far away to another Island in Washington State magic was recently made under the tutelage of India Flint. I was lucky enough to be there.
|Arriving the day before the workshop began, I got to meet some of the local residents...
|...see some of the sights...
...and wander through the hedgerows of this beautiful place.
Lopez Island abounds in small farms...
The workshop was held in a garden Alice in Wonderland would have been at home in.
One of the first activities of day one was labeling our silk, cotton, and wool with our own mark.
The contents of my first bundle included both green and 'toasted' leaves.
How it was fascinating to see the diversity of our bundles.
We hung our newly-dyed treasures on the lines outside the workroom and went back to bundling.
I had such a good time, learned so much and met so many kindred souls.
