Zelda is very interested in the exploration of shades and hues available from plants for natural dyeing. She feels there is something very mysterious; and appealing about the unpredictable process of using nature’s harvest as dye-stock, whilst achieving a wonderfully authentic feel. Marigold (left) harvests a lively golden colour.
Learning to weave has opened up a whole new world of texture and the possibilities to create patterns seems endless.
Sewing and Fabrication
Zelda has advanced sewing skills including pattern layout and planning. Projects often require prototyping and sketch models have to accompany presentations. These skills are essential for proper testing and measurement prior to final implementation.
