Sue Pedley Masterclass

RAW: Experimental Textile Dying and Staining with Sue Pedley

Immersed in bushland at Eramboo, artist and NAS lecturer Sue Pedley takes you on a journey into experimental textiles and fibres using raw materials and site-responsive processes. Extend your sustainable textile practices with dying and staining techniques using plants, natural materials and found objects. Experimenting with local plants from the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park area at Eramboo will provide an entry point to the ease and satisfaction of creating beautiful hand-dyed cloth. Sensory experimental processes with thread, paper, rusting, folding, binding, burning, piercing, and mending will be explored as ways to create unusual patterns and textures in textiles, along with new meanings and directions in your work. Sue will introduce you to a wide range of artists working at the intersection of fibre and art practices, sharing her ideas and inspiration within a friendly, supportive, creative studio environment. Return home with a bundle of textiles and fresh ideas.
