Day 7 Artist in residence

I'm not doing very well at getting stuff on the blog the last 2 days. Yesterday I got asked to do another commission for an advertising agency and went into the city to discuss it with them then stayed there to look in all the bookshops and galleries as well as having a look at some of the stuff which is on for the Festival of the Arts.

Today I spent with the Whitireia students experimenting with the natural dyes but once again the fabrics are still all bundled up and won't be available till tomorrow.
We did get a nice green from boiling kowhai pods and adding ferrous sulphate (iron) and a strong rust colour from Eucalytus.

More tomorrow
