Biochrome is a naturally occurring substance which imparts colour to the tissues of plants or animals. Plants and animals commonly possess characteristic pigments. They range in plants from those that impart the brilliant hues of many fungi, through those that give rise to the various browns, reds, and greens of species that can synthesize their food from inorganic substances (autotrophs), to the colourful pigments found in the flowers of seed plants.
This workshop will be led by Ummi Junid (@duniamotif & @tukang_chelup_warna) and is designed to be an explorative workshop where we explore and discover various natural colour pigments. You will go home with swatches of fabrics dyed in the natural kitchen waste dye and new knowledge in biochromes.
Kitchen scraps you can bring to the workshop:
1. Onion skin
2. Avocado skin / pits
3. Used tea leaves
4. Used coffee grounds
5. Carrot top
6. Pomegranate / mangosteen skin
(If you don’t have these, it is totally ok, we will have them ready for the worksop. But if you do have them, feel free to bring it along)
