Colours from Nature 

Exhibition of work created by students of Jenny Dean’s natural dyeing course

Thu 2 November 2023 @ 11:00 am - Sun 5 November 2023 @ 4:00 pm

Included in your ticket to Double Weave: Bourne and Allen’s Modernist Textiles 

This 4 day pop-up show will celebrate the work of recent and former graduates of Jenny Dean’s popular 6-month natural dyeing course.

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft’s collection is rich with natural dyeing and textile craft and the South Down National Park is one of the most biodiverse areas in Europe. The likes of Ethel Mairet, Valentine Kilbride, Hilary Bourne and Barbara Allen all helped revive interest around natural dyeing in the 20th century, which DMAC now celebrates with its own Dye Garden run by volunteers and an ever-expanding learning programme around natural dyeing.

Recent and former graduates of Jenny Dean’s course will be invigilating the show and will be happy to speak to you about the work on display.

Curated by Jenny Dean, Emma O’Neill (Learning and Public Programme coordinator) and the artists.
