TrishAlan Designs will be attending their first ever Brisstyle Market when they bring their Eco Dyed Fabric & Threads to the Brisstyle Indie Eco Market! The Eco Dyeing method, developed by TrishAlan Designs uses much less water than traditional dyeing methods. An extra benefit is that there is no chemical residue entering the waterways.
“An eco themed market is right up our alley”, says Trish, “we’ve always created using items that other people have discarded. I often save bits and pieces simply because I’m sure that I can come up with an idea for it. These bits (plastic bottle rings champagne wire, hand dyed paper) are combined with our fabric & threads to create a new item."
Throughout the day Trish will be demonstrating kumihimo or Japanese Braiding. "Kumihimo is so easy to learn and is suitable for children from 7yrs +. I love the infinite number of possibilities Kumihimo allows. Experimenting with different types and colours of Eco Dyed Threads the finished braids can be incorporated into jewellery, bag handles, piping, hair bands. The list is endless."
You do not want to miss this special opportunity only at the BrisStyle Indie Eco Market on Saturday 10 July, 9am-2pm at St Augustine's Church Hall and Grounds, Racecourse Road, Hamilton. BiECO is supported by Peppermint Magazine.
That looks like lots of fun! Wish I could join in!
Looks FAB! I definitely want to join in!
Ooh, I remember learning this at school! Yay!
We used to make braided 'friendship' bracelets at school too. Hope I've got time to pop over for a demo.
I never learned to do the friendship braiding thing as a kid. If I get a chance to get away from my stall on Saturday I'd love to come and learn!!!
You girls are in for a surprise. This is quite different to the friendship bracelts we did as kids. AND Kumihimo has lots more uses as well.
