During her Hill End residency Sally Blake intends to create a ‘Dye Diary,’ a written and visual record of dyes on cloth and paper made from the local plants. This will extend her previous plant dye research and become a unique record of place, as the biophysical conditions and flora of the environment will produce distinct dyes. She will also work with natural and manmade found objects to make paper-based and three-dimensional assemblages.
