Growing Colour Together means connection to me…it’s about bridging that gap between gardening and art practice’. Project Manager, Elanz Yazdani

The film showcases different perspectives on dyeing from local experts, such as Andrew Filarowski from the Society of Dyers and Colourists, to figures from the education sector and sustainability pioneers all looking to make a difference.

The film also features moving stories from artists who use sustainable dyeing methods to connect to their garments and communities, as well as sharing the rich textiles history of Kirklees, and the benefits of experiencing nature. The artists employ a range of methods to creatively repurpose items, from eco-printing to embroidery, sharing their experiences with the craft.
