Artist Bio / Statement
My name is Jennipher. I love to work with natural fibers and natural dyes! Wool and silk are particular favorites of mine, and I am always thrilled to find just what I need from Dharma Trading Co. I dye my fibers by hand, using alum as a mordant (I get that from Dharma too). I like to use dyer's mushrooms and onion skins from home, and then I go to Dharma Trading Co. for the harder to find dyestuffs like cochineal and madder root and sandalwood. After I finish a big batch of fiber-dyeing, I like to make little things out of my precious wool felt. Little animals are a specialty of mine, and I sell them in my Etsy shop: Henny Penny's Jumble.
