The workshop features a sonic meditation to raise awareness of weaving and natural dye practices as an alternative to fast fashion.
It starts with a body warm-up and  Deep Listening exercises created by artist and composer Pauline Oliveros. Next, we introduce participants to weaving and natural dye practices. Finally, we gather all participants for a quiet  "concert epilogue" where weaving sounds will be reinforced by gentle saxophone sounds.
By the end of this activity, participants will be introduced to weaving and dye practices through a learning framework approach based on Deep Listening. The practices introduced involve working with regeneratively farmed wool and colours created from scratch using pigment extractions from plants.

Workshop was originally conceived in London at House of Annetta in 2023. ·
