Springtime is providing the “bounce”, getting hands wet and into merino wool again. Here’s a photo taken before it was framed.
You may be thinking, what are tjaps! At a 2015 workshop by Els Van Baarle I too wondered. I became intrigued by the imagery these beautiful tools create.
My tjaps are vintage copper blocks made in Jarva for batik printing on fabric. When they no longer are needed they are sold to artists.
This is is my latest addition to my collection.
And this is what emerged from dyeing at my home workspace.
