Creative Circles and Jika Jika Community Centre

Jika Jika, Cnr Plant & Union Sts, Northcote, 3070

This practical ritual involves the simple technique of imbuing paper with colour using plants, rusty found obects and heat. We will talk about sustainable harvesting, seasons, plant species and natural mordant options. This process can be used (with an additional step) to dye fabric. We will also be making string out of corn husks. Participants will take home a landscape image and an array of dyed paper which can be displayed as an artwork, or developed further into a sculpture, card or book.
