Hunting for colour

The secret life of plants. Finding colour from unexpected places.
Having grabbed a great opportunity at the end of August to attend the workshop run by Australian artist India Flint, I’m now further  familiarising myself with the wonderful process of eco plant dyeing. I can see many creative applications to combine these magical results with the making of my stone talismans, so I’m quite excited. And just the imagery from the process itself is great creative juice for me!

The annual return to my heart scenery is always as wonderful. The cottage in the archipelago of Western Finland treated us again with the most incredible sunsets. Amidst enjoying the Finnish chocolate, rye bread, Karelian pies and wood-heated sauna, I even got a bit of creative work done!

"For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice. And..."

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
~T.S. Eliot, ‘Little Gidding’
