At this workshop you will learn how easy it is to create natural colours from herbs, spices, plants and food waste. Precisely food waste such as shells, peels and cores contain natural colour pigments that are suitable for colouring textiles and paper.
Københavns Plantefarveri will introduce you to a number of colour materials that you can easily collect from your kitchen and show how you can create beautiful colours and patterns with them. Then you will have the opportunity to experiment with the colours, on both textiles and paper. By the end of the workshop, you will have created a beautiful palette of swatches and your very own furoshiki*, and the knowledge + techniques needed to create pigments at home.
This workshop is been held in collaboration with the Respond Festival, so by attending this event, you will get free admission to the Respond Festival, which will be held June 6-8. More information about the Respond Festival - https://respondfestival.ida.dk/
*A furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth, traditionally made to carry gifts, clothing or other items. This piece of fabric is perfect for transporting many different things or for gift wrapping, and gives you a sustainable alternative to plastic bags that can help prevent more plastic pollution in our marine environment.
Food and drinks will be served at this event.
