Environmentally Sustainable Dyes with Gillian from ReMode

About Environmentally Sustainable Dyes with Gillian from ReMode

Natural Dyes Workshop - A creative session using natural dyes. Thursday 19th September 10am-1pm.

Workshop Overview:
During this session we will explore the natural colour pigments produced in wild flowers and plants. Starting the session by creating colour notes from local wildflowers we will move on to create a range of beautiful blues from the foliage of the woad plant.

This session is a starting point to exploring more environmentally sustainable dyes and pigments for creative practitioners.

Please bring an apron/overall or wear clothes which you don't mind getting stained permanently!

The Facilitator:
Gillian Steel is an artist with an eclectic practice which binds together filmmaking, digital imaging, textiles and drawing. Across these she has over the last 10 years been developing an environmentally sustainable practice - both in terms of materials and processes.

Part of this has included small changes like the use of tiny handmade screens to reduce ink and rinse water for screen printing and a dedication, where at all possible, to using discarded materials only. She has also been exploring Caffenol recipes involving vitamin c powder, instant coffee and sodium bicarbonate - for the hand processing of traditional 16mm film - and developing her knowledge and practical uses of natural dye stuffs and processes.

In 2017 she founded ReMode - an organisation comprising shops, maker spaces and a meeting point for textile designers and makers of clothing who all want to disrupt those established design, manufacturing and consumer processes which make the textile industry one of the most toxic on our planet. The backbone of ReMode is it’s education programme to engage local communities in micro-manufacturing workshops, designing and making using zero waste principals and mending or adapting clothing to extend their wearability.
