an adventure in bio regional dyeing
with some gentle stitching time
in the subtropics
we'll be working in the delightful 2.5 acre garden where the 2010 Fieldwork class was held. [it's on the north western outskirts of Brisbane approx 20 kms from the city centre]
covering an introduction to ecologically sustainable dyeing, the composition of the optimum eucalyptus dyebath and of course ecoprint bundle dyeing...
we'll gather windfalls and weeds, observe the effects of various found metals on colour outcomes and stitch together the samples as they dry to form a beautiful composite cloth which will offer possibilities for ongoing stitching and embellishment
this is a three-day intensive class suitable for all textile lovers; the only skill you really need is the ability to thread a needle.
dates : 11,12,13 May 2012
