Join Master Weaver Ilka White between 11 am and 4pm in the LAI courtyard as she demonstrates the art of natural fibre dyeing. Discover the variety of colours can be obtained from a selection of local plants - a beautiful palette is available without the need for harmful chemicals. Ilka White’s practice spans textiles, sculpture, cross-disciplinary collaboration and art-in-community. Her making and teaching practice is informed by direct engagement with the natural world, an abiding interest in world textile traditions and the principals of sustainability.

This program is part of Interwoven a cross-cultural, transgenerational weaving collaboration presented by La Trobe Art Institute and Multicultural Arts Victoria, Emerge Cultural Hub, Bendigo.  Part workspace, part exhibition, Interwoven brings people from diverse backgrounds together, through the process of weaving.
