Sunday 14 August
Bundle Dyeing workshop
Led by artist Kate Temple
Suitable for all ages, no creative experience required
All materials provided
We are delighted to welcome visiting artist Kate Temple back to Cample Line this August for a bundle-dyeing workshop.
Taking inspiration from our current exhibition, Saoirse Amira Anis’ For no other reason than joy, Kate Temple will guide us through the bundle-dyeing process, taking us foraging in the green space surrounding Cample Line to find natural materials to use, which we will then prepare into bundles with fabric. Whilst the bundles are steaming, there will be a chance to have some refreshments and see Saoirse’s exhibition.
In For no other reason than joy, Saoirse has included a number of textile pieces that she dyed using natural materials such as red cabbage, turmeric and gorse flowers – all of which produced an array of vivid yellows and purples, creating vibrant, joyful colours and effects throughout the space.
Kate Temple is a visual artist living near Edinburgh. She works with installation, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, painting and performance, and is interested in cross-disciplinary and socially engaged practices. She frequently works in collaboration with other artists and non-artists. She also works in art and community engagement, leading and facilitating projects for a range of groups and individuals.
Drawing and collecting are regular elements of Kate’s practice. Since 2020 she has been working with plant material foraged from near her home, and has been making her own ‘living’ inks; oak gall, acorn cap, elderberry, bramble, rosehip, sloe, gorse, nettle, tulip petal, copper and iron.
