Through the act of gathering materials for the dyes, we get to know each other, and the place where we are walking. Back at ACE Open, you will work with Katie to create your own unique dye and use this to stain and manipulate fabric to create your own individual textile piece.

Throughout the workshop Katie will also discuss ways of introducing processes centred around sustainability into your creative practice. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about working with natural materials from collection through to creation.

Please note that this workshop will include walking and foraging. Certain paths and foraging areas may not be fully accessible. As with all ACE Open programs, please contact us before making a booking to discuss your access requirements and we will work with you to meet these needs as best we can.
