Description

Join us for a Dying with Food Waste Workshop with Lauren MacDonald from Working Cloth.

In this workshop, picking either a tote bag or a pair of socks, you will learn the fundamentals of botanical textile dyeing with dyestuffs sourced from household food waste. We'll go over some basic notes on materials, process and best practice, as well as three recipes for botanical food waste dyes. We’ll discuss responsible material use and the surprising beauty that can be found in objects which would otherwise be thrown away.

Lauren MacDonald is a multidisciplinary artist and designer. Her approach and aesthetic have been tempered through academic studies in Material Culture and Textile Science, vocational experience in the London Fashion Industry, and an ongoing obsession with materiality, form, and functionality. Her practice is textile focussed and spans interaction design, installation, sculpture and 2 dimensional stitched forms.

The workshop is open to a maximum of 10 participants (age 16+) on a first come, first served basis. Attendance at the workshop costs £40 (£30 students) with all proceeds supporting our After School Club for the local state school students.
