Explore living colour with Spontaneous Atelier. In this workshop we will explore the age old art form of making pigments for cloth using botanicals from our local landscape. Using traditional & exploratory methods we unfold earthen alchemy into cloth, a magic process. This art form cultivates a deeper perspective of our relationship to our environment we call home! Open to all ages of colour lovers.
