Autumn Foraging

I've been doing lots of walking recently as training for my Charity trek & it's been fantastic to see the gradual changes in the season.  Every day I go out there's something a little different;  a little more colour in the leaves, a crisper feel to the air, a more pungent smell of earth.....

Whilst walking I've collected materials to try out as natural dyes.....blackberries, elderberries, oak galls, birch bark have all found their way into my bubbling pot of colour.  The resultant cloth maps the walks I've made & I'm currently working on ways of sensitively piecing together the cloth to form large pieces.
