Inspired by permaculture principles of re-use and zero waste, join artist Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck to learn the basics of natural dyes and reveal a palette of colours from plant-based kitchen waste, such as onion and garlic skins, carrot peel and avocado pits.
This workshop is directly inspired by the method employed in Johanna’s series of collaborative installations, ‘Penser, Manger, Partager’ (‘To Think, To Eat’ To Share’, 2015 – Present); the series’ most recent iteration will be exhibited in a new exhibition at the Gallery titled Edge Effects (opening 31 January 2024).
It is an entry-level adult-only workshop, and no prior experience is required. The method can be repeated at home, with no additional material purchased other than what is to be found on most kitchen shelves.
All materials and refreshments will be provided.
Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck (b.1990, France) is a painter, transdisciplinary artist and cultural practitioner based in rural Oxfordshire.
Her practice, composed of painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, film, photography, writing, participatory projects, horticulture, publishing and workshops, often conceals caring, positive and ecological messages rendered in soft and delicate methods. Interaction with the environment and others is central to several of the artist’s projects.
Recent solo exhibitions include Dreaming about Tomorrow at Nidi Gallery. Recent group exhibitions include One Foot in The Sky at Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer and New Nature at Paterson Zevi.
Johanna founded the collaborative cultural deep-ecology-informed initiatives Poetic Pastel Press and The Gardening Drawing Club. She co-founded the publication series Journal du Thé – Contemporary Tea Culture.
