revving up



after my little quiet vacation, i'm revving back up for some events. little ones, like getting the paper mill functioning and experimenting with new knowledge. tonight i talk to ed clark's papermaking class at suny potsdam about my paper and book stuff. they'll get some textiles thrown in for good measure. i just took this piece of heavy linen/cotton (perhaps, carol didn't know for sure) paper out of the dye bath. dyed with bloodroot and black hollyhock, vinegar and water. it's almost edible.
this is a piece of cotton fabric that i used for indigo clean up in tatiana's class. i today wrapped it up with maple leaves that had fallen, and they imparted a tiny bit of ochre to the cloth. this is a nice one, but the paper, oh, my is great.
me moving my camera last night at dusk, making a mess, and liking it. indigo and rust. again.
