Ffion Taverner is an artist who specialises in Natural Dyes which are often sourced from her surroundings, between rural Wales and the North of England.

She has recently completed an instructional artist residency specialising in Natural Dyes with Arquetopia in Peru 2019 which delved into the tradition of colour within Peruvian culture. 

 

Working within such a slow medium creates an open-ended relationship to each ingredient sourced. She reads nature through colour, allowing her curiosity to forage and collect material; cooking up experimentation. Collaborating with natural ingredients and organic fabrics, Taverner creates a connection with the material that is rooted and playful; allowing her to discover what our surroundings can create.
