Event description

Description

Spend the morning studying the Horniman Museum’s handling collection of historical and contemporary textiles, before returning to CoolTan Arts for an afternoon textiles workshop in the West African technique of Tritik dyeing.

During the workshop participants will form an idea on paper then develop this to reach a finished product, which can be taken home or displayed in CoolTan's gallery for Black History Month.

The workshop will be led by textiles tutor and practising artist Lu Firth, who has received training from the Horniman Museum in using their collections for community learning and has extensive knowledge in the use of historical batik dyeing and textiles from around the world.
