ABOUT

Welcome to The Natural Knitting Project. This is where Bronx residents explore the idea of creation in a eco-friendly way and create an exhibit featuring their hard work and labor as a eco-friendly design and manufacturers.

FORAGING AND DYE PRODUCTION

Every resident explored the process of foraging for natural dyes. They also create a dye garden in order to harvest mass quantities of dye for future use in their handmade products.

NATURAL DYE PROCESS

Bronx Residents learned how to weigh yarn hanks, measure mordants, and prep for natural dye baths

MAKING A NATURAL PRODUCT

After residents dye large batches of wool they are put to the challenge of knitting or weaving one everyday product. Bronx residents even had to make their own knitting needles and weaving looms.
