Current Projects

Using period natural dyes from the aluminium trifomate experiments I am recreating an Oseberg tablet woven band, using Shelagh Lewins' pattern.

Past Projects

Organized by craft type. 


This project combines a non-period mordant with period natural dyes (heather; Calluna vulgaris L. and madder; Rubia tinctorum L.). The rationale behind this is to experiment with cold mordanting and provide more evidence for aluminium triformate as a viable alternative for common mordants.
