Read the exhibition text, "Savory / Terrestrial: Lauren Chipeur’s malleable method for minding superfluous sulphur," by Danica Pinteric. Download web version.

Presented in partnership with the Department of Visual Arts, Western University

In conjunction with her exhibition, Lauren Chipeur will guide a workshop on natural dyeing with onion skins. Participants are asked to bring a natural fibre material (fabric, clothing, paper etc) to dip into the dye bath.

note from Lauren: If you want to bring a synthetic or partially synthetic textile material I am happy to experiment but cannot guarantee it will work.

Participation is limited. Please contact to confirm your attendance.
