My arrival in Taiwan is supposed to teach botanical imprints. Before the tuleage to a student in the coming weekend in Taipei, my host Meg in Taichung was so nice to introduce me to her friend Ma-Li Chi, renowned artist of dyeing and weaving. In her studio we're offered to experiment indigo dye. It's a bonus to my travel and was so happy to play around blue. The studio is located in a village with nice and spacious views.
來到台灣主要目的是前往台北的植物移印染教學，課堂未開始前專程到台中探望Meg，她很熱情的招待我並帶我參觀她朋友 - 台灣纖維藝術家賈瑪莉的藍染工坊，我們還有機會玩玩，染指藍藍創作曡石、花兒、如河流的流動、似天上浮雲.......很有趣味的做了兩件多樣紋理綿麻巾，我們還會在明天嘗試植物移印染加藍染的變化，這個體驗工作坊是此行的額外而又豐富的安排。
In the studio there're lots of pretty crafty displays of natural colours
Indigo dyes among the most. They're so beautiful tones.
Such beautiful dye vat - reflection of trees like skies
This small piece to be opened
My big one to show a few tying outcomes
The cotton piece looks like fish scales or stacked stones
