Company: Natural Dye Making

2 – 4pm

Shieldfield Art Works

Come and learn how to make natural dyes from fruit and vegetables we have around us! This event will be held at Shieldfield Art Works.

The dyes made will be used in our tie dye workshop to tie dye tablecloths ahead of our community meal on Saturday 19 August.

This workshop is part of Company, a weeklong series of workshops and events from 14 August 2023 – 20 August 2023.  Company is devised for young people in Shieldfield, and explores the connection between food and art, and their ability to bring people together! The project includes daily workshops across 1 week, hosted at local Shieldfield organisations. The week will culminate in a 2 day weekend celebration with a communal meal and breadcrumb trail around Wretham Place, and an exhibition at Slugtown.

Company has been devised by Slugtown, and kindly supported by Ragdoll Foundation.
