Rescheduled: Kent CLOTH | Walk, Forage & Dye Plants

11th May 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Fabric cloth being dyed

Join us at Milton Creek Country Park on 11 May to explore the local area and discover local colour from dye plants with artist Fran Baur from Fable & Base.

Exploring the Park we will walk along the riverside and forage for local plants to create colour. We will use these to create a colour map of Swale.

Throughout the workshop we will be working on ideas for a collaborative hanging inspired by Swale’s rich heritage, and collecting stories, images and drawings as part of the Kent CLOTH project.

We will be developing visuals through mark making, drawing and playing with scale, sun prints and poems.

These images and stories will be collected at the end of the workshop and brought to life by using the traditional dye techniques Hapa Some and bundle dyeing, and exhibited in the gallery at No.34.

What you need to bring

All materials, use of tools and equipment are provided. You will need to bring images/maps/photos for reference.

Bring a packed lunch!

Please make sure to leave a contact number when you book your ticket, so that we can contact you if poor weather looks likely to affect the workshop. You will be able to book your tickets over on Eventbrite.

This is the rescheduled workshop from 27th April, which had been postponed due to predicted bad weather.
