My two day Indigo and weave workshops are focused on seeing the potential in forgotten materials. You are invited to bring your fabric/ garments that have a special story, memory or meaning, that you will dismantle and have the opportunity to dip dye and to create a unique piece of weave to treasure. A time to get away from the fast pace of our digital lives and to embrace slow craft processors.Day One
Kate will talk about what inspires her work and her journey since graduating 4 years ago.
The weekend will comprise of:
Mark making, a discussion of depth of colour, areas of the cloth/garment to be stitched, folded, knotted that will create interesting patterns when dyed.
Take time and consideration to create marks in fabric being dyed
Kate will talk about Indigo as a dye and its values
