Presented by BLEACH*
Join Norton Fredericks of Retritus, a queer Indigenous sustainable fibre artist specialising in the ancient crafts of felt and botanical dyes. Norton teaches us how to create botanical contact prints on paper, and explains the science and history behind natural dyes.
The printed papers provide beautiful backgrounds onto which workshop participants can later add their own artworks. Norton also demonstrates how to create these sustainable monoprints on clothing, and discusses the importance of slow clothing and natural fibres. Bring your own foraged leaves or use the natural materials provided, then take your newfound knowledge and botanical prints home.
This is a participatory experience, incorporating elements of song, spoken word as well as use of instruments and artefacts.
Participants with specific access needs should contact the BLEACH* team via email [email protected] or 07 5525 6468 to discuss your particular requirements.
