Ally Capellino - Indigo
Focusing on the spectrum of blues in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection we have commissioned the textile designer Katherine May to create some beautiful indigo dyed runners for the shop windows. Katherine has made a limited edition of 40 individually dyed cotton canvas shop bags retailing at £20.
How to do Blue
An expert in Indigo dyeing, Katherine will extract the dye from the indigo plant and demonstrate the process transforming a series of Ally Capellino canvas shop bags. She will explain the process from seed to cloth and share the natural and social history of one of the oldest dyes to be used for textile dyeing and printing.
Demonstration and Talk at our Calvert Avenue shop:
3pm & 7pm 13th March. Ally Capellino, 5 Calvert Avenue, E2 7JP
Places are limited so booking is essential. The £5 fee will be donated to the Geffrye Museum to further develop their natural dye garden.
