Join Juju Haifawi and Alana Gregory for a workshop exploring slow food and slow fashion. Learn to prepare Kimchi, two variants on the traditional Sauerkraut, and make your own remnant silk natural dye scarf with colourful organic ‘waste’. Participants will take home 3 jars of fermented foods and a hand-dyed silk scarf. Your insides and outsides will thank you!
‘Slow Food’ is a movement that supports access to food that is healthy and flavoursome, clean and environmentally safe to produce, and economically fair for producers and consumers. Bringing the same approach to our clothing, fashion has the potential to nourish and warm our body, soul, environment and community.
Based on today’s knowledge regarding the importance of diverse and healthy gut flora, fermented foods created from organic fair trade produce fall in line with the slow food mantra and can be seen as medicine for the modern age. Natural dye’s created from organic sources are medicine for our water-ways and our skin!
Almost all cultures have some kind of wonderful fermented food in their traditional diet and use natural dyes to colour their world. In this workshop, we will use quality produce to create healthy, probiotic rich fermented foods for a contemporary palette and then use the ‘waste’ materials to naturally dye a remnant silk scarf.
