India Flint is a visual artist, specializing in natural dyeing techniques in the deep south of the Australia. She uses bio-regional and ecologically sustainable dyes from windfallen leaves, bark, and earth pigments with cloth, paper, felt, and weaving. The artist was recently featured in our Bloom magazine. On the subject of handmade objects, she writes:

 

« in my travels i am finding more and more that people are searching for « meaning in handmaking »

and wanting to learn how to use their hands again

to have the satisfaction of creating an object for themselves

 

for myself, the return to constructing cloth through weaving

is a meditation

forming the cloth line by line

thread by thread

i work white or undyed

and then

at the end

 

dye the hand woven cloth « path » with leaves

and

ochre »
