Our project is coming to a close at the end of this year. To celebrate the work that has been done we are exhibiting images and work from the project in Bradford over the next two weeks.
The project has explored the textile dyeing heritage of Bradford with participants from around the city for the last two years. We have used a combination of textile-making activities, community-based reminiscing projects, the creation of dye plant gardens and archive research as our process.
The exhibition is at the Colour Experience, Perkin House, Bradford BD1 2JB. We will be open between 1 and 4pm on November, 11, 13, 17 and 18. All welcome.
The image above is of Sow: Sew, a collaborative community textile made with the input of sixty stitchers and many others who nurtured and cultivated our dye gardens. It is displayed on the railings at our Hive dye garden.
