Eco print and Slow Stitch - Saturday 6th October 2018
ECO PRINT & SLOW STITCH
Nature’s Bounty. Wendi’s workshop is suited to those who are curious and open to the spontaneous serendipity that only nature can insure.
The “Sandwich of Cloth” is a great introduction to botanical and natural dyeing;you will learn the essence of natural print and resist dyeing on silk and wool cloth. You will learn the technical skills of the process that involves imparting colour and marks from leaves and flowers onto cloth and thread.
While the sandwich of cloth and leaves are cooking over a gentle heat we can explore some “Slow Stitch”. This type of stitching and stitching in general is a bigpart of Wendi’s creative process. We will work on a simple project of your choice - a needle roll, pin/needle cushion or similar.
Before home time you get to unfurl the contents of your “Sandwich” and this is the magical moment as the wonder of nature reveals herself.
I am ecowott or Wendi Trulson the “eco” refers to the environmental integrity of my arts practice and the” wott” is acronym for Wendi of the Treasure, a name from my childhood.
I now live and work in the surrounds of Lamington Plateau, foraging my own backyard for leaves and inspiration. As I work with a natural dye process that is ecologically sound and keeps the environment and its user’s safe.
My concerns about the infinite use of resources is very important to me and I wish to encourage others to think about the fabric they wear and consume? With my art practice, I am exploring the possibility of the reuse and renewing of textiles from the discards of society into usable art.
