Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft are celebrating the centenary of the first edition of weaver and dyer Ethel Mairet’s book ‘Vegetable Dyes’, written and printed in Ditchling where she lived. The exhibition /live research project at the museum is to recreate each recipe (around 100) from her book.
Textile artists are encouraged to take part by selecting a recipe from the first edition ‘Vegetable Dyes’ and contact Lucy Jenner at the museum who will provide all the details of the project and how to get involved. The growing exhibition will feature labelled thread samples of wool, silk, cotton and linen.
Exhibition runs from 17th September 2016 – April 2017 Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft
