test

A conversation last week with my friend Claire, about light fastness, has prompted me to test some of the things I've been working with lately to see how their colour stands up to exposure to light.


I've taken snippets of samples of the naturally dyes papers and fabrics I've produced, sewn them to paper and then split it into two similar strips.


 One to sit by the studio door, in the light...


And one to sit in a drawer, in the dark.

  1. Very happy to have found this post - thank you for taking the time (and care) to test these swatches...I will follow their progress, too! And in the meantime, I'll peek around your blog a bit :>]]
