Silk Scarves

Because of the lockdown creating large installation hangings has been difficult due the the space available in which to create them. Small piece seemed like a better option and since deciding to do this I have been slightly more productive. I have a few ideas for projects but am enjoying creating some Dyed and Cyanotype scarves as well as learning to edit films and delivering and creating online workshops.

I created a short film of the creation of a cyanotype silk scarf at Elvaston Castle and Pebble Beach.

 

With the great weather we have been having recently has enabled outdoor work and experimentation with cyanotypes using parts of the landscape itself.
