Description

Chroma is the title of the book Derek Jarman wrote about color in the last months of his life when he was losing his sight. It is an autobiography through color blending chromatic impressions, reflections and childhood memories.

Jarman no longer sees the colors, but he can tell them. They are in her mind, her body, in her emotion and in her last garden created at the top of a blowing cliff.

It is from this idea that we will explore color in plants through vegetable dye.

Onion, avocado, turmeric or madder, the most common plants of our daily life or those which are properly tinctorial, offer us lively and unexpected colors.

Between cooking and chemistry, we will see how the colors reveal their emotional impact on cotton, wool and silk from the bottom of colored pots.

Level

No level is required. The workshop is open to anyone who wants to learn the basics of vegetable dyeing.

Equipment

Bring an apron, gloves, scissors, and a notebook for writing.

The fabric is provided, but it is possible to bring in addition pieces of fabric to be dyed, of natural origin: silk, linen, cotton, wool.
