Garments at Euroa

Lee Higgins has been dyeing and over dyeing a number of up-cycled garments.

 

Working with textiles has been an interest of Lee’s from a very early age. This interest has continued and expanded throughout her life, developing and producing textile work using her own designs. Working in several different mediums including fabric, yarn and felt provides opportunity for experimentation and expanding  creativity. Natural materials such as silk, wool, cotton, and linen are the textiles  preferred. Working with our small group to explore organic dyeing using local flora has been the inspiration for this body of work.

The garments are in a variety of fabrics….linen, cotton, silk and some are a mixture.

Beautiful indigo dyed topThis up-cycled garment has been dyed in a natural indigo vat. Lee was thrilled with the variety of shades across the top.

eco dyeThe delicate colour was obtained using grape pressings. Note the added lace detail on the lower RHS.

indigo and eco dyeThis little top has first been eco dyed then indigo dyed.

indigo dramaThis top was pleated and clamped before being placed in the indigo vat. The effects are delightful. The lace edging really picked up the dye.

indigo with rufflesThis is another indigo garment.

indigo dyed dressIt is interesting how the different fabrics take up the indigo dye.

The price for each garment will be $45.
