We have the great privilege in Dunedin to meet and work with many amazing artists and textile practitioners. We met Kirsten Kosh, graduate of the Dunedin School of Art, leading up to our UNSTITCHED pop up in 2017. She has wonderful skills with wire work and jewellery, and lead a fantastic workshop of weaving wire pendants in a workshop that was completely booked out.
Recently she has been studying eco dyeing, using traditional techniques for printing fabrics with flowers, herbs and other found items, including rusty nails!
Kirsten has agreed to share her knowledge in workshop for us. Kirsten will bring in examples of her eco-dyed garments to help participants understand the technique and see the possibilities for their pieces.
"We will assess the dye properties of different fibres and weaves, and work in pairs using dye materials, mordants and ways of folding and binding our fabric to produce different effects."
Saturday 10th October
11am - 2pm
Stitch Kitchen Studio, 88 Vogel Street
