Beautiful Blues

Glorious summer day!

I held an Indigo workshop for a young talented artist, Connie.
Her paintings are astonishing.
She is one of the prize winners of Black Swan Arts Young Open 2016.
The winners were given one-to-one workshop with a professional artist or craftspeople as a part of their prize.

It was a perfect day for indigo dyeing.

After the workshop I dyed my yarn as well.
I had series of beautiful blues and green, onion orange over-dyed with indigo.


Connie is form Hong Kong. She wants to carry on her study here.
She is a great artist already but there are still a lot to learn.
Good luck Connie!
