A Celebration of Ethical Textiles

From the Earth Textiles are organising an exciting new event taking place next year.

"From the Earth is an event which is planned to take place in June 2016. Its aim is to promote ethical textile practices in the broadest sense, through the use of natural dyes and printing processes, natural fabrics and fibres, with particular reference to those produced in ethical ways, upcycling and incorporating other natural materials and ‘found’ items.

Currently, a month long exhibition is planned at the lovely PS Arts Centre, Datchworth, Herts. In addition to this, we are putting together a series of associated workshops by well known textile practitioners which will be held at nearby ArtVanGo in Knebworth."

The amazing Jenny Dean who featured in our first interview will open the exhibition and eco-print guru India Flint will be offering a workshop from 13th-17th June which is sure to book up fast.

From the Earth also have a Facebook page where you can follow their progress with this inspiring venture.
