WORKING MEN





Blueprint is a very old handicraft technique which combines block print and
indigo dyeing. The pattern is printed with a reservating ink, and afterwards
the fabric is dyed with indigo. In a one week lasting workshop I learned to deal
with this old technique and tried to combine it with pigment inks. The theme of
my patterns is men wearing boiler suits, a typical working man’s clothing
which is mostly coloured blue.
