Grid (Black Iron / Red Alizarin)
Here you have the classic grid. In order to produce this piece we prepared a mordant/resist which we block-printed onto the cotton. Next we prepared a natural black dye made from scrap metal which we applied with the help of a brush. While it was drying in the sun we heated a vat of water and alizarin to roughly 60℃. The material was given a good wash to remove the resist and then 'cooked' in the vat for a good two hours.
