Having fun with variegated colour! Swipe for close ups.

This is #purewool from #capebreton that I have #handdyed with Walnut, Marigold, and Madder (the last two, home grown, but my own walnut trees are not yet big enough to harvest for dye - all in good time!).

Posted @withrepost@mamiesschoolhousecapebreton I’ve been away from social media for quite a bit of late. Besides the endless behind the scenes work that goes into setting up a new business, I’ve had a difficult personal matter to deal with and, as such things do, it had temporarily sapped me of motivation, and I’ve had little time or energy to do any of my beloved fibre work.
But something shifted a few days ago, and the siren call of glorious natural fibres and my never-ending love of plant dyes pulled me back in this weekend.

There is no greater healing for me than working with my hands, in ways and with materials that nurture, rather than degrade, the Earth.

I’ll soon be posting Mamie’s Schoolhouse’s inaugural calendar of workshops for Summer and Autumn 2018, and I’ll be teaching a range of sustainable techniques, including how to achieve results like this.

Of course, Irit Dulman is also teaching here this September, and there are still some spots left in her first workshop. For details, see our web site.

This is what’s been keeping me busy for the last while. But it’s like an iceberg - the pretty pictures are just 1/10th of what goes into planning workshops! 🌿
Posted @withrepost@mamiesschoolhousecapebreton These are some of the workshops that will be taught by Mamie’s Schoolhouse this Summer and Fall on beautiful Cape Breton Island. Details will be posted soon at the link in our profile, where you can also sign up to be notified of the launch of the 2018 workshop calendar. It’s going to be a fun, hands-on, ecological feast of natural fibre goodness!

I was so over-tired the other day that I accidentally soaked both my cloth and my carrier cloth in a dilute iron solution. I didn’t realize what I’d done until I was unbundling. It looked like an overly dark mess at first, but after drying and an iron, I’m warming to it. I’m amazed at the deep purple hues coming through the Cranesbill, and the whole effect reminds me of an old English chintz.

Busy preparing lesson plans and materials lists for a range of sustainable fibre arts workshops this Summer and Fall!

Posted @withrepost@mamiesschoolhousecapebreton Are you a weaver? Do you do rug-hooking, embroidery, knitting, crochet or lace-making?

This Summer on glorious Cape Breton Island you can learn how to dye your own yarns and threads using the gorgeous hues waiting to be discovered inside plants from your garden and the roadside, and with techniques that are all-natural and sustainable.

Learning to prepare, dye, and finish your yarns/threads properly, and which plants to use and how to prepare them, means that an endless array of colours is available to you, and the results will be lightfast and washfast, and ready to be crafted into your own beautiful creations.

Cellulose (e.g. cotton, linen, bamboo) and protein (e.g. wool, alpaca, silk) fibres are molecularly quite distinct from one another and, therefore, need to be treated quite differently throughout the natural dye process. Classes in both will be taught through Mamie’s Schoolhouse.

Sign up at mamiesschoolhouse.com (link in our profile) to be notified of the launch of the full workshop calendar!

Posted @withrepost@mamiesschoolhousecapebreton The ancient Japanese art of shibori can involve a lot of specialized equipment, and there are certain resist results that definitely require it.
But there are many beautiful effects you can achieve with simple, household objects.

This was created with folds and the use of clothes pegs and paint stir sticks to block off certain sections of the cloth during dyeing.

You can sign up to receive notification of Mamie’s Schoolhouse’s full course calendar through the link in our profile. How to prepare and use an #organic #indigo vat, and create beautiful #shibori effects, will be taught this Summer on #capebretonisland.

Frozen shibori. We’ve had our third big melt since the new year (climate change; there is no history of such crazy January weather in the last 1,000 years), and we’re going to get another massive snow dump tonight as the temperature plummets, so I whipped out to take some pics of some of the pieces I’ve been working while the ground is relatively snow-free. Everything was still a bit damp, so the cloth instantly froze and I had to bend the fabric into shape over the clothesline!🙃 #shibori #persicariatinctoria #indigo #arashi #itajime #nui #sustainabletextiles #ecologicaltextiles #dyedbyhand #mamiesschoolhouse #foreverbrigit #naturaldyersofinstagram #plantdye

Made a super soft and elegant dress in our OEKO TEX solid double gauze along with a cord belt.. Just can't take it off. I think I may also need a red and a mustard version :) #doublegauze #fabricshop #ecologicaltextiles #oekotex

Quite often when I scour my thrift store finds, the synthetic dye washes away, leaving a pretty neutral background. But the super soft pure merino wool sweater from which I made these wrist warmers retained it’s pretty soft blue which, I think, is a lovely background for my leaf prints and embroidery (thread dyed with madder). #ecoprint #printingwithplants #contactprint #leafprint #dyedwithplants #foreverbrigit #organic #surfacedesign #sustainabletextiles #ecologicaltextiles #inspiredbynature #naturaldyersofinstagram #slowmade #handmade #ilovecbcraft #vccreates #wearableart #upcycle #thriftstorefind

Yesterday, when I took this photo, may have been the last day the ground, with all the lovely fallen apples, was visible for the season, for this morning all is white. I printed this silk with a hodgepodge of leaves left over from other work, and really like the soft result against the Dyer’s Chamomile background.

I use pre-loved natural fibre sweaters (mostly wool and cashmere) that the thrift stores can’t sell (due to holes, stains, etc.) and turn them into one of a kind wrist warmers and other useful items, and keep them out of the landfill so they can enjoy a new life. These wrist warmers will be in my online store this evening.

Finally I am able to tell you about the most wonderful working project I was into at last summer: @hempea.fi is a new home textile brand from Northern Finland and all of their beautiful products are made of 100 % hemp fabric. In this era of mass consumption and synthetic fibers, working with this kind of genuine and responsibly behaving brand is a huge privilege. I'm so happy to introduce you @hempea.fi because their products are surely ecology, simply beautiful, timeless, modern and very sophisticated. There is an exclusive discount code for all of you sweet readers of Yellow Mood - it's found from my post (link in bio)! #yellowmoodlifestyle #ecological #hempea #hempeafi #hemp #hempfabric #hempbedsheets #bedsheets #ecologicalhome #bedroom #interior #scandinavianhome #hamppukangas #hamppuvuodevaatteet #sisustus #organictextiles #ecologicaltextiles #finnishdesign

Getting some product photography done, while the weather still allows for outdoor work, for the launch of my new web site and online store in the next few days. I love the textures of this time of year.

I’ve been very precise with a lot of my surface designs lately, but for this piece, I went for a more organic, layered effect, and I love the way it turned out. Dyed first with natural #indigo.

All native species of the Acadian Forest ecosystem where I live - Red Maple, Sugar Maple, Striped Maple, Beech, and Birch. I am also slowly reintroducing many native species on my property that have been largely extirpated over the years - cut down for wood or because people didn’t appreciate their ecological importance - including Black Walnut, Staghorn Sumac, Witchhazel, Red Oak, Wild Raisin, and Chokecherry. I’ll be planting native species until the day I die.

The wind has been howling all night, and it bucketed down rain which is now turning to snow. It won’t stick, as it’s still mild out for the time of year, but it’s a thoroughly miserable morning, so I am grateful for simple comforts such as the wonder of plant pigments on lovely fibres from the Earth.

Super fine merino #wool with ferns, maple, and lilac leaves.
