This workshop will explore hands-on natural fabric painting and dye processes using a colour palette developed from the colours and materials of the Coal Drop’s Yard site. We will use natural dyestuffs to create a small swatch book to take away and work collaboratively on a large scale fabric piece. No experience is necessary. Please ensure appropriate clothing is worn, such as long sleeved clothing that can be gotten dirty and closed toe shoes.

Claire is interested in the intrinsic qualities of textiles and materials such as their textures, weights and finishes; their abilities to tell narratives of new material futures.
