Fabric Dyeing

This was a series of fabric swatches hand-dyed and inspired by the imagery of microbiology.  All were dyed with a variety of techniques, including hand-printed fiber reactive dyes, vat dyes, disperse dyes and shibori techniques.  While this was just an introductory exploration, there were principles of positive and negative space, as well as contrast and balance, that I've learned can be applied to other areas of design.
