Ceres will be holding a day of dye garden creation and natural dye events.
Learn how to start your own natural dye garden, and practise natural dyeing with Ceres at the Remakery. The morning will be dedicated to growing a dye garden. We will be discussing some of the easier to grow indigenous dye plants, demonstrating ideas for making your own recycled containers, and planting seeds. Some of these seeds will be for the Remakery dye garden, and some will be available for you to take home in the containers.
A picnic in Myatts Field Park (weather permitting)
Bring your own lunch or something to share
In the afternoon we will demonstrate how to set up natural dye vats using locally foraged and bio waste natural dyestuff. We will show you how to dye a variety of fabrics, to take home as samples. There will be opportunities to try different colour modifying ingredients, and a demonstration of eco solar dyeing.
Lara Mantell, Florence Hawkins and Zoë Burt are a trio of eco-conscious designers, with expert knowledge in dyeing and printing natural dyes onto fabric and paper. They have extensive experience in hosting creative workshops.
Ceres are currently Artists in Residence at MoDA. Their recent collaborations include natural dye workshops at the Orchid festival at Kew Gardens. They won a headline project for London Design Festival, “Town Hall textiles” as
part of Brixton Design trail, printing with plants & bio waste on textile and paper. As a trio, Flo, Lara and Zoë bring creativity, organisation, and a passion for sharing the excitement and properties of plant dyes to a wider audience.

The Pacific Ocean was a starting point for the theme of Cultural Patterns. I chose the paddle as an emblem of connection between humans, their environment and the spirit of the land. The paddles would also have been used for discovery and as gifts and for trading, exchanging cultural pattern and styles. Three paddles were painted on board the Endeavour by draftsman Sydney Parkinson (1769) on a voyage of Captain Cook. There was no written language on many of the pacific islands, art held sacred information, often painted with plant colours vanishing soon after made. In response, my papers have been hand-painted with plant colour extracts – madder, weld, sorghum and persian berry and treated with light sensitive solution and printed with imagery reflecting aspects of the fluidity and direction of water.
It was an honour to exhibit works on paper with talented artists Bukki Adeyemo, Jan Cook, Line Le Fevre, Jan van der Linde, Rachel Preston, Cherry Taylor, Lauraine Turner and Sarah Wilson as part of the Advanced Textile Workshop at Morley College.
