Textile Trip to Melbourne

 Last month I travelled from Sydney to Melbourne to attend India Flint and Roz Hawker's workshops that were part of Beautiful Silk's Natural Dye Symposium. This had been a long awaited trip to immerse myself in dyeing and stitching for three days. Heaven! And the best way to learn anything. I'm looking forward to trying out some of my learnings with my local vegetation. I have three bags of various bits and pieces at the ready to start the alchemy!

The rainbow that greeted us on the day of departing Sydney. A good omen.
