Rainbow clothes on my shelves and hangars!!
Colour is one of the attributes that attracts me the most when I walk into a fabric / clothing store. Colour speaks to me. It tells tales of passion, love, energy, happiness, nature, calmness, sadness, royalty, mystery, formality, creativity…to write down just a few.
In this amazingly magical session, we will explore a few natural dyes we can try at home. What makes natural dyes a great choice for conscious fashion advocates is that the process is inherently slow and intentional. The ever-changing hues are the best part of their beauty and we all need to shift our mindset when it comes to how we perceive what fashion should be, and at what cost.
What are natural dyes?
Natural dyes are a nontoxic alternative to conventionally used synthetic dyes that are causing irreversible damage to the planet.
I’m a multi-disciplinary artist, and love to engage with folk/tribal art from across the world – wiPth a special focus on India. I design and conduct experiential workshops, giving a contemporary bent to heritage Art n Craft. I have thoroughly enjoyed conducting in-person and online workshops for audiences in India, USA, UK, Australia, Dubai. My workshop at Amazon HQ in Seattle demonstrated the ease with which art communicates with people from different countries and ethnicities. The learning and sharing process has been unique in each workshop and the participants’ ages have varied from age 8 to 80!
