Toronto Gone Wild

Urban Colours & Natural Dyes Workshop

Join us for a workshop on natural dyes with Carolanne Graham

Co-presented by Museum of Toronto and Contemporary Textile Studio Co-Op

There are vibrant hues hiding in unexpected places around the city! Ever wonder how you can turn food scraps and urban waste into dye?

This workshop offers you an opportunity to explore the world of “urban colour” with the Contemporary Textile Studio Co-Op. 

Learn the art of creating dye from avocado pits, onion peels, bricks, and metal scraps. Get hands-on and learn to infuse yarn and silk with unexpected colours. 

Don’t miss this inspiring blend of art and sustainability.
