The Art of Instruction


I have figured out how to combine my love of fiber + botany.
Natural Plant Dye.
Working on a simple top down Cardi dyed with natural plant dye.
You can see more of it
 
 I am leaving for Santa Fe New Mexico in 3 weeks and hope to be wearing the cardi on the trip.
 
I am also enjoying my Botany book:
 The Art of Instruction
 a beautiful collection of vintage Educational Charts from the 19th and 20th century.
 A plethora of color and creativity is ongoing from this book.
 
So what juices you these days?

  24. Camilla, that cardi is divine--you dyed all those colors yourself? You are on a roll. It's such a joy to watch you on this creative path. I hope you have a BLAST in Santa Fe! In 3 weeks we'll be heading to Tucson...wish I had such a perfect cardi to wear in the desert, too. Maybe I'll have a cute bag. ;) xxo
