Rust printing on wool

Much of the late summer was taken up with completing my MA Research essay, which was about the way in which weaving terms have influenced our language. I really enjoyed the reading and the research, which took me into lots of new areas, but it is also good to come back to printing and textiles.

I have found that rust printing works best on very absorbent fabrics (rather than paper) so have been working on a piece of Yorkshire wool flannel which I bought from Whaleys in Bradford. It is such a pleasure to handle it.
