Eco Dyeing Workshop
Eco dyeing is an age-old technique of making marks and patterns on textiles that is kind to the environment. Moreover, it is a respectful way of communing with nature and humanity. This practice promotes a zero waste lifestyle, and a do no harm attitude.
Come and join me for a magical day practising the meditative art of slow-stitching and eco dyeing. We will be using new, recycled and food waste to create beautiful and functional pieces that are easy on the environment.
We will connect with nature and ourselves and use these elements as a reflection on cloth which we will make into a functional piece ideal for Furoshiki...Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that is used to wrap all sorts of objects, often in elaborate shapes. In Japanese culture, furoshiki functions as a method of communication, with its many knots and ties representing the ties between people.
