Such a wonderful project, thank you so much for sharing. When you say “reclamation”, Anita, do you mean anything other than leave it alone?

Marijke Bongers
01:12:31
You talked about the Willow and what happend to it. I work with the Willow too, I have the feeling that the tannins haven an effect on the fibers
Polly Furr
01:12:39
Often reclamation in a more active way, means removing invasive species, and planting “pioneer” species to repopulate the land.
Norma Nuñez-Langlois
01:12:41
do you do online classes?
Michele OReilly
01:12:44
Do you plant the plants or are they wild?
Jessica Young
01:12:49
This idea reminds me of the book Rambunctious Garden by Emma Marris
Heidi Iverson
01:12:57
More about the oxidation of the colors
Marijke Bongers
01:13:58
Yes I am not sure but I notice darkening but also a bit of adding stifness
Heidi Iverson
01:14:01
Maybe the interaction of the exposure to sun. Similar to the darkening of un ripe persimmon dyeing
Marijke Bongers
01:14:27
Yes Heidi, and like the mud silk
Helen Kennedy
01:14:38
Willow is acidic. Source of natural aspirin
Marijke Bongers
01:15:23
Yes I know, but I think the tannins is the thing that hardens the fibers
Heidi Iverson
01:15:44
Iron and tannins also darken as they sit and cool
Madeleine McGarrity
01:16:08
Was the darkening permanent after you finished and dried the textile?
Marijke Bongers
01:16:17
ow, yes, the willow gives a great grey
Kathy Lambert
01:16:31
Any data on light fastness or holding color over time?
Heidi Iverson
01:16:50
It’s like the dye is a living being
Marijke Bongers
01:16:52
no, I know it gets more brown
czarina lobo
01:17:06
Speaking of sumac as a tannin. Are you using it in place of say gall nut? and How do you gauge how much you use?
Polly Furr
01:17:06
Marijke, I am especially enchanted by mud silk. Can I email you separately about this? Thank you! pollyfurr@venicestudio.com
leslie leonard
01:17:10
Kakashibu also is a brown that darkens over time
Marijke Bongers
01:17:52
yes Polly!
czarina lobo
01:18:22
Have you then used Rhubarb as an experiment as well?
Kathy Lambert
01:18:22
Acorns!!!
Kathy Lambert
01:18:40
Tea.
Marijke Bongers
01:18:53
I will focus on this part in the citizen science project of the Textielmuseum in the Netherlands!

01:18:54
Soy!!!
Christina Kingsmill

rhubarb leaves work well as a mordant

Michel Garcia has been working in this area.
Marijke Bongers
01:20:07
M. Garcia worked with the mirobalan nuts
czarina lobo
01:21:04
We used only that in India for all our clothes and yes used for scour
Adrienn Gorgenyi
01:21:15
Soapwort has saponin in it, but I guess you would need a higher concentration
Margarida Vasconcelos
01:21:22
M. Garcia also worked with symplocos
Elisa Kessler caporale
01:22:02
Is soap wort Bouncing Bet
Marijke Bongers

Love that Anita!
Polly Furr
01:23:13
Exactly! Geocaching is the exact concept but for the earth in a textile art way!
Marijke Bongers
01:23:50
but it would be a great funding question! making that map!
Helen Kennedy
01:23:51
There’s a roadside hypericum that makes a good yellow
