Jude Craig - Textiles
Jude is a natural dyer and textile artist. Her innate love is indigo, closely followed by a passion for extracting all colours from nature. She derives much pleasure from botanical research and showcases the alchemical hues on yarns and cloth. Indigenous dyes, supported by master pigments, create a palette of harmony from Nature’s Cauldron.
Her natural dye studio and workshop space are nestled amongst the mountain ash trees of the Dandenong Ranges. Visitors will encounter monster indigo vats, cauldrons of liquid dye next to bunches of foraged plant materials and a plethora of lovingly dyed yarns and fabric. A thriving garden of dye plants sits next to medicinal and rare ones, the bees from the hives on the land have much to do.
