Natural Dye Workshop

Francesca Baur of Fable & Base will be delivering a natural dye workshop.

Kent Cloth explores a slower approach to textile production. A journey of local cloth which explores the Garden of England through natural colour & local fibres. Kent Cloth embraces both local heritage and landscape to create a cloth that reflects the beauty of Kent’s wildlife and celebrates local traditions, raising awareness of provenance and sustainability through eco-friendly production techniques working with natural dyes and European linen.

Francesca Baur of Fable & Base is developing a series of Textile Works based on the seasons exploring the landscape of Kent across four locations culminating in an exhibition at The Rochester Art Gallery on 4th October 2019- 4th January 2020.

In this workshop you will explore the possibilities of natural dyes, preparing you to cary out your own plant dye projects at home. You will work with a colour palette from Boldshaves garden, food waste and dye extract and you will leave with a collection of dye samples.
