DIY Botanical Dye Workshop 29.9.18

Updated: Sep 15, 2018

Multidisciplinary fibre artist, Elena Tochev, is hosting an upcoming workshop on dyeing natural fibres using plant materials that express the colours of time and place.

“When I go deep into a forest I’m drawn to a greater presence. Through observation I place my finger on nature's pulse and forge a connection within a moment of time. The trees, plants, animals and insects, the wind and sun, the patterns, colours and textures, the smells and the vibrations of life – I invite nature to move through me and influence my creative expression with plants and fibres.”
