A calm spring day and a vat full of indigo dye never fails to inspire a good mood in Raumati. The Maori word Raumati translated into English means ‘summer’.

I’ve tried to capture summer impressions and colours on cloth- natural fibres as much as possible. From plants, rocks, nearby beaches and native bush tracks you can see where we’re located…..

A few experiments with Michel Garcia’s natural indigo recipe and my nuno felt and some good results makes me think the trip to Hong Kong was worthwhile after all!

I’ve waited since January for a chance to get out the dyes and work it all together..the Kapiti Arts trail is on again in the new venue- Whitireia’s campus up here and I’m keen to show some new works. Dates for the Arts Trail- 3rd and 4th November Kapiti Road. http://www.kapiticoast.govt.nz/Our-District/Kapiti-Arts-Trail/
The eucaplyt eco print dyed on silk satin has then been felted and added to indigo.
I’ve made several samples and now have them drying off on the line.
