Presented with the support of Anne Safranyos & family, the AGW is pleased to present Family Fun Sundays in the Studio, a series of fun and interactive art-making activities which respond to current exhibitions, seasonal holidays and special events.

In this workshop INCUBATOR Art Lab research assistant Ashley Hemmings will demonstrate how to make natural dyes from plant matter and vegetable scraps, and how to use these dyes to colour fabric and yarn. This fun workshop can easily be followed from home, and will focus on making art with free or cheap materials found around the home.


  • Plant matter or vegetable scraps
  • Pots
  • Spoons
  • Water
  • Access to a stovetop
  • Yarn or fabric to dye (MUST BE natural fibres: cotton, linen, hemp, canvas, silk, etc).
