Since August 2020 Simone has been engaged in a creative residency at Rekindle, developing a series of resourceful craft workshops. This time has been an opportunity to deepen her understanding of natural dyeing and felting techniques, and develop engaging ways to teach these practices. The first workshops launched in November 2020 and included Botanical Ink Making, Natural Dyeing for Wool, and Eco-printing. The next workshops due to launch in June 2021 include Slipper Boots, Felt Wristwarmers and Eucalyptus Printed Hottie Covers. More details on her work at Rekindle can be found here, along with dates for upcoming workshops.
