Natural Yarn Dye

Main Speaker: Charlotte Roberts
Natural Dyes

Charlotte is a textile artist with a passion for natural dyes and fibres. She spent the Summer growing natural dye plants and linen flax at the BHU organic farm in Lincoln, which you may have heard about on the Green Thumbs podcast.

Working from her home studio in Birdlings Flat, she dyes local wool with natural dyes and hopes her work will reconnect people with where their clothes and textiles come from.

Mini Speaker: Bridget Allen
Sensory Nature Play

Bridget will introduce us to The Green Lab's Sensory Nature Play project The purpose of The Green Lab's (formally Greening the Rubble) Kaupapa is to design, create, and test meaningful greening events, ideas, and spaces that contribute to the social, cultural, wellbeing, and environmental ecosystems in Ōtautahi. Currently, The Green Lab is actively involved in designing and building a Sensory Nature Play area on Brooker Ave in the red zone. Their goal is to create an accessible space where all people can connect with nature /taiao; where the seasons are experienced through the senses.
