Growing Colour Together is a natural dyeing project that explores the techniques and processes involved in natural dyeing and how they can be applied to textile art and making.
By getting involved you can learn about growing, foraging and harvesting plants that make natural dyes, about natural dyeing processes and how they relate to industrial processes with the textile industry, and take part in workshops where you can use natural dyes to explore colour in textile art, design and print.
You can watch instructional videos and download resources through the links opposite.
And then please sign up to the project mailing list to receive more information on further events and activities in the run up to the festival in June 2021
We’d love you to document and share your growing and harvesting journey, so please tag any photos or stories @WovenInKirklees and #GrowingColourTogether
This information will be shared with HATCH (WOVEN curators). It will only be used to get in touch with you about Growing Colour Together opportunities at WOVEN and will not be passed to any other parties, within or outside HATCH or Kirklees Council.
