The students in my Mark Making With Machine class yesterday worked on building up grounds to sample on.
Using Leslie Morgan and Claire Benn’s tray dyeing method they each dyed about 4 meters of assorted fabrics in their chosen hue. Next week they will re-dye some of the fabric to add a second layer.
They also painted some gradations, a la Ruth Issett.
The students are doing a number of exercises to build up a personal palette in an analogous colour scheme.
