Their new collective exhibition Mood Indigo takes the melancholic title that has long influenced the creative arts, and presents a range of textile works inspired by the ancient Indigo dye, taken from the Indigofera tinctoria plant.
Indigo is a dye that demands discipline to use, and the use of both natural and synthetic types reveals a rich and surprising blue colour spectrum throughout the fibre pieces. With a focus on specialist technique to convert fibre into thread and fabric, collectively the Guild presents works that exemplify the skills of dyeing, spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet.
