Eucalyptus Dyed Scarves
With Sally Blake
11am-3pm Sunday 8 March 2020
In this workshop, you will learn how to make eucalyptus dyes and see the colours three local eucalypt species make on wool, silk and cotton. You will also learn how to use eucalyptus leaves to make coloured leaf prints on natural fibres. Each participant will take home a scarf they have dyed.
About Sally Blake
Sally Blake’s practice is concerned with visualising the complex interconnections between the human and natural worlds through textile and paper-based media. To reveal these connections, she works with natural processes and materials such as plant dyes in the creation of artworks. She is particularly concerned with cycles of death and renewal and regeneration as well as finding the points where transformations may take place. In her contemporary drawings and textiles, these natural cycles are explored, as well as the consequences of their undoing. She feels deeply about disconnections in human understanding of the natural world, which results in environmental crises.
All materials will be provided.
