What an incredible first saturday at the Garden Lab @510! Throughout the morning we soaked our fabrics in a vinegar and water soak (we used 1 cup vinegar to 1 cup rain water) as we upacked all of our goodies. Rose and I found out that we are kindred spirits…we both love rusty doodads, weird collecting items and glass jars which is GOOD since these are all things that we need for our compost dyeing experiment. Once we set up out table in the middle of the Garden Lab (thanks for bringing the sun umbrella, Rose!) we started to experiment.
We documented all of our bundles and most of the process in photographs. You can see some of Rose’s photos (plus a lot of background on her art installation) on Facebook here. Check out some of what I was working on below. We’ll be back next week to unbury and unbundle some of our experiments from last week. Hurray!
