LIVE FEEDBACK FRIDAY-Sasha Duerr Talks Plant Dyes - Shared screen with speaker view
Laura Berkowitz Gilbert
I just got my indigo package from Botanical Colors this afternoon!
have you dyed with californian Toyon. Any poiny
Have you worked with.
how do you know something has potential color or dye within a particular material? how do you go about testing your ideas about if something has potential color?
Have you worked with Californian Toyon, any pointers? Solar generated but wondered how long to leave in the jar
Does the book focus on yarn? Or does it include dyeing on fabric?
What sort of dyes/inks were used in the printing of the book? :)
I would like to be the hibiscus queen
The Edible Schoolyard is one of the most amazing places I have ever been
How color fast are the dyes that you get from the waste products.
have you dyed on non bleached cotton, linen or hemp?
Where did you get your permaculture degree?!
Yay. Permacouture Institute!
Thank you Abigail!
Oh, that was Sasha’s organization. Not sure where she obtained her degree/certificate. Oops!
Are the plants featured in the book light and wash fast?
and have all the samples in the book been tested against UV and washing?
Hi everyone, please make sure you stay muted. Thanks!
how lightfast are all these natural dyes?
Do you always need a mordant?
That’s so beautiful,
going to get her on mordanting in a sec Gail
How have you taken your plant dye practice on the road? Did you pack certain things or are you buying supplies as you go?
Can you describe your bucket system you use with students a bit more? How many students do you have in a class and how big a space do you have for them?
What resources and/or processes do you use to research the history of the specific dye stuff you plan to use?
What are your hopes for how your latest book might impact the design realm, specifically interiors, architecture, the wellness sphere?
You mentioned memory as an important part of your process, what role does history, of place, social history etc. play in your practice?
So a sort of site-specificity in design.
And local eco-literacy.
Does your book have color stories/processes that can be done with children?
Great question, Carl. Thank you.
Have you explore any tropical plants from Asia? Do you think there’s a lot of difference?
many times I have spent dyestuff that contains metals like iron and I’m hesitant to place it in my compost; how do you feel about this?
I look forward to getting this unique and broad book. Given the focus on swatches, which I love, how do you deal with plants that give different color depending on season, or pH, or something else? :-)
I will add the link … hold on.
As mentioned by Sasha: https://www.nienkehoogvliet.nl/portfolio/seaweed-research-book/
thanks Abigail and I’ll include it in the notes later too :)
was there a mordant with the seaweed?
high ph water?
Southern California is having a massive red tide right now. Thinking about the possibilities… :)
How do you your loved ones and colleagues deal with the smell of seaweed? I have to convince my partner that something died in our yard when he smells it
do you dye large pieces of fabric & make your own clothing?
does the book have basic formulas?
This is amazing. Thank you so much Sasha and Amy and Kathy!
I find dyeing with a cold logwood dyebath more interesting results than with heat. Usually combined with iron.
Thank you, Enjoyed so much!
