Get Involved - Growing Colour Together

natural dyeing

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.

To get started you can download our Growing and Harvesting or Foraging instructions for plants that make natural dyes. And then sign up to the project mailing list below to receive more information on how to contribute your harvest to the project in 2021.

The next WOVEN festival will take place in June 2021 and by getting involved with Growing Colour Together now you will have opportunities to contribute to the planning and development of an event at the festival that will showcase the project and your creations.

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.
