Maker 42

Sounds like something out of George Orwell's 1984 doesn't it?   My very clever and talented friend, Caroline Parrott started the year with her project Create 52.   The aim is to produce one item each week, based on various artists' work, using different mediums.

I was honoured that she choose me as Maker 42.   The project - a shibori/indigo dyed scarf.   Come the day, the brief changed slightly.    A coat and felt were the ingredients. The coat dyed in indigo.  Originally a pale cream with mixed fibres, not all 'natural' so it was never going to be a dark blue.   The felt was dyed using Procion dyes.    A fun afternoon, with cake. of course.

The result, with Caroline's signature swarm of butterflies cascading over the shoulder.
