Sustainability & The Weaver by Alison Daykin
October 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Do you know where your yarns have come from, what they are dyed with, and whether any harsh chemicals are involved in their production? Award-winning weaver Alison Daykin has been researching and implementing tactics to reduce her environmental footprint and to sustainably-source her materials. From reducing water consumption in processing to changing to all-natural dyes for her fabrics, and from careful overseas sourcing to developing local supply chains, Alison will tell us about her journey towards becoming a sustainable weaver. Alison will also help us to open our eyes and take a good look at the fibres, materials and dyes we use ourselves.
