In July, nature is blooming and rich with plants and sources of natural dyes.
Using organic ingredients that we have sourced from the natural environment of Northern Jutland, we will make our own dyes but other dyes as cochineal and indigo will show how colours of red, purple and blues can be obtained. Other materials for dye baths can be purchased in supermarkets, found in freezers or at spice racks.
Choise of material will be wool and silk – mainly yarns.

ABOUT
Helle Trolle was introduced to plant dyeing by a Danish pioneer within this field, Ingeborg Mule Henningsen. Since Ingeborg’s book edition on plant dyeing in 1979, she gained futher experience from travels, e.g. to Japan where she focused on indigo dyeing.
Helle concentrates on the great colour variation found in the Danish flora, but she combines these natural sources with imported plant dyes in order to obtain stronger and more durable colours. Right now, plant dyeing has its revival and Helle’s continious research has proved that new beautiful shades can be obtained without the use of toxics.
Helle is Workshop Manager and teacher at the Danish Design School Kolding, DKI.

FELTING STUDIO AT TVERSTED SKOLE
TURNING THE FIBRES UP SIDE DOWN – Experimenetal felting

Teacher: Suzi Rosschou
Weekend workshops (2 days) at the following dates:
3rd – 4th March 2018

In this product focused world this workshop pauses and turns things upside down. We will focus on the felting process – even if our aim will be to create a beautiful and personal product. Concentrating on the process itself, by choosing the colours, materials, effects and (whimpsy) finesse, the experiments will guide each participant to his or her own source of inspiration. It might be the colours, the forms, the smell, the texture, the nature or mabye the sense?

A better understanding for your own world of colours and your sources of inspiration will take you new places and help you finding your own creative language, and make your final result more complete, – you might even surprise yourself.

ABOUT
Suzi Rosschou has her own studio at Tversted Skole, where felting and knitting designs comes to light. Suzi’s brands are SUZI ROSSCHOU DESIGN and PETITE SOMETHING. Please visit her websites for further information of her work and wonderful fairy tale world of fantastic felting and knitting products.
