The Art of Cloth Dyeing

with Jane Dunnewold

  • Dharma black dye
  • fabric folded with several grids cut from a gutter cover. I originally bought the grid to use as a stencil and stamp with fabric paints.

Q&A with Jim Vander Noot

mckennalinn asked:
I'll bet your gutter cover is the same as my garden grid material, a heavy plastic. Mine was a large piece, not a strip, so I could cut it on the diagonal to make a straight-grain grid rather than crosswise. I alternated squares and triangles between fabric folds to get that ghost image of triangles on my blue piece. I love your piece. Are you thinking of overdying it?
Jim Vander Noot answered:
It was a long plastic strip with these rectangle grids evenly spaced. Originally I was thinking of overdyeing with a peacock blue, but I have some ideas about screen printing on the existing black fabric.
