after months of musing and murmuring, Beautiful Silks announce a southern hemisphere follow-up to both ISEND2011 [to be held in France in April this year] and the UNESCO Natural Dye conference in Hyderabad 2006.
'Nature's Colours in the City', a natural dye symposium focussing on ecologically sustainable practice will be held over two weeks in Melbourne, Australia in June-July of 2012.
Look forward to exhibitions and seminars, museum visits, a range of workshops and to seeing Julian Roberts [subtraction cutting] and India Flint [botanical alchemist] work together on a week-long collaborative project in the new Textile Gallery at Beautiful Silks.
the committee is open to Expressions of Interest for workshops, lectures and associated exhibitions in Melbourne , please contact
with your proposal.
