Printmaking with natural dye

Turmeric Dye Bath Tea and Coffee Dye Bath

Its all been a bit quiet on the blogging front due to the grey area of crossing over between two projects. This usually means there are lots of days where you feel nothing is getting done until the end of the week and you start to see the fruits of your hard work.

Here is the start of a new research and development grant funded project (via LeftCoast) to experiment and explore how nature can provide the pigments and dyes to use in printmaking. This serves two purposes. One is to teach the young people I work with at the Mereside Boys and Girls Club how to grow food and what small changes healthy eating can achieve. Once the food has been grown I will also use a small percentage of the produce to then experiment with creating inks to print making my own work 100% organic.
