Introducing your Guide into the world of Natural Dyeing:
Hi, my name is Anne Foy and I have explored various textile techniques over the years (some of them quite toxic). I have been drawn to the importance of chemical-free dyeing which has led me to travel widely to learn from people who have dedicated years to researching traditional dyeing. This includes in:
- 2014 - Claudy Jongsta in Holland
- 2015 - Aboubakar Fofana (from Mali / Paris) in Sydney
- 2016 - the World Shibori Symposium in Oaxaca, Mexico
- 2017 - Irit Dulman (from Israel) in Spain
I work from my home studio using natural dyes with shibori, felting, eco-painting and spinning raw fibres.
