On Thursday, May 22nd, Sewing Seeds presents STAINED, an event of sensorial experiences through natural dyes.
STAINED was created by artist Cara Piazza as an unique experience for the public to engage with natural dyes through the lens of experimentation, ritual and performance. The event will challenge and delight the senses, inviting guests to participate with different “sensorial stations”, all interacting in unique ways with natural dyes.
An opulent table featuring ceramic works by Daniela Jacobs
and Betty Roytburd, hanging net installation and table linens created by Cat Lauigan of Cave Collective and local delicacies curated by chef and artist Nicole Asselin, that will also function as dyes and stains.
A tent will be erected, where guests will play with scent and sound, with scents provided and conjured up by Natural Apothecary
and beauty guru Jessa Blades
Each station will combine all the elements of the human senses of sight, taste, touch, hearing and smell and abstract them to wholly immerse you into the world of natural dyeing.
Join us for a night of celebration of art and natural dyes, local food + cocktails, and unique experiences.
All the proceeds from this event will go to the SEWING SEEDS program, which includes an Art Residency, free educational programming, creation of natural dye gardens, and development of resources on natural dyes, such as maps, tutorials and instructions. LEARN MORE HERE.
SEWING SEEDS provides accessible, accurate, and inspired information on natural dyes, to bring awareness for their use as a sustainable art medium.
We believe in natural plant dyes as a sustainable alternative for art making and textile production. We believe education is empowering and will lead to change.
Help us continue making Sewing Seeds possible.
