I went with my boys to see the local medieval society day. We got there at th end and watched the  knight on horseback. I love the whole knights and all, I am so happy my boys like it too so I can have someonr to go to these events with. We were luck enough to see some of these while in england, so it is a little out of place here in tasmania but Still I am happy there are some very dedicated followers of the traditional life of the medieval people.

Dyeing divas

Google has don it again. I will try and return these pictures but These are done by Carol Kingston. Natural dyes on paper. I am so sorry for all the head on side to enjoy these but when I first saw these I was totally taken by then. The photo doesnt really show the texture of these pieces. Visually stunning and I could not believe it was paper they had been painted on. There is just so much texture in them. I a huge favourite of mine, and also for my dad.

Dyeing Divas2

As you can see google seems to have turned my photo sideways, but if you turn your head you will see these two wonderful dyed pieces by Di Mcpherson. They are just stunning. These were part of the Unravel exhibition by the dyeing divas at the botanical gardens. Such talented women who make wonderful art fron nature. There was so much to be inspired by at this exhibition. I hope this group exhibits some more.
