June Brown – Eco Dyeing & Eucalypt Books

29 August – 23 October 2017 | WPCA Foyer

 

Renowned local textile artist June Brown, and her husband John, have travelled the Australian landscape and identified a selection of the vast number of Eucalypt trees. Collecting small leaf samples, June has then dyed wool and silk fabric for the unique colours produced from natural dyes. These beautifully created textile books are records of June’s love for textiles and the species that has helped create them.
