Growing Together Woven Weekend
June 26 - June 27
The Friends are thrilled that the ‘Growing Together’ project is holding their last event in a fortnight of activities throughout Kirklees in Ravensknowle Park. We will be providing refreshments. Growing together is a natural dyeing project that explores the techniques and processes involved in natural dying and how they can be applied to textile and art making.
You are invited to visit Ravensknowle Park in this final weekend of the Festival to find out more about how to make natural dyes, the kind of suitable plants and materials used and how the dyes can be used in textile artworks and fashion. The ambition of the project is to build a network of colour gardens across Kirklees, and the Friends, in creating a colour garden, are proud to be part of this.
Do come along and pick up a copy of the family friendly workbook of natural dyeing activities to follow as you wander through the Park on this weekend.
