Material Spaces: Ma-tt-er + SPACE10 – Natural dyeing workshop

London, Shoreditch 14:00 - 16:00 BST 23.09.17

How do materials and textures affect our experience and understanding of space? How do materials change the perception of a space when the substance of that space is ever-changing from solid to fluid? How will materials evolve our spaces in the future? Explore material spaces of tomorrow with Ma-tt-er and SPACE10.

As part of their exhibition, Ma-tt-er will host a natural dyeing workshop to show how red cabbage can be used to measure pollution levels.

You will discover how to use dye to determine whether local water is acidic, alkaline or neutral. As well as visualising something that is often invisible and learning about the local environment, you’ll be able to dye and personalise an object to take home, such as a T-shirt, tea towel and tote bag.

The workshop is limited to 20 participants and has been fully booked.

From 18-23 September, SPACE10 is hosting a pop-up in Shoreditch to explore the consequences of urbanisation and the spaces we inhabit. Over the course of six days, during London Design Festival, we will examine the concept of space from different perspectives. Learn more and sign up for the different events here.
