Natural Dyeing Summer 2020

Rather a delayed post but better late than never! Whilst Provenance didn’t have an indigo dye class this year we did take the time to get a few pots on the simmer. We have had some amazing results with onion skins and better success with madder this time around. Our trusty indigo vat was re-invigorated and as per usual did not disappoint. Dyeing with walnut husks was new to us and whilst we got this amazing chocolate brown liquid it didn’t translate onto fabric with only a pale taupe achieved.

If you are wondering what to do during lockdown for 4 weeks then dyeing could be the answer!

 

Trip India 2020 Update

Well our trip was unfortunately very short! We managed to get to Singapore but could not fly on to India due to border closure to all foreigners. Unfortunately we had to return to NZ but we hope to re-schedule our trip at a later stage.
