NCS Fibre Fallout

The morning mist over the lake at the Johnsonburg camp NCS used.

Rita Buchanan, an extraordinary teacher and accomplished person, before beginning the one day workshop, one of the very last she gave before retiring.

Dyed Soy Silk from Jenny Bakriges Spinning Silken Fibers Workshop

Finally, here's a photograph taken 10/1/06 of the soy silk we dyed in Jenny's wonderful workshop. Unlike the rest of the class, I used one color for each section of silk. I didn't want the muddiness that might have resulted from painting on variagated colors. The soy silk takes the colors brilliantly. My favorite is the bright fuschia cochineal.
