Bundle Dyeing

I may have cheated… I bought some roses that were reduced from the supermarket! This goes against all the ideas of the Sorrel and Silk project, which was to use foliage and flowers from Derbyshire. However, in my defence, yesterday it was an immense effort to get out of the house.  I decided to have a go at just using petals and steaming the bundles to extract the colours from the petals. I’m really happy with the results.  I have had my eye on some flowers in my garden, but as my daughter planted them, they are untouchable.  These pieces will probably be used as backgrounds for collaged textile pieces later on this year.
