Windeyer Studio is a collective, multi-generational practice in natural dyeing founded in 2018 by Joanna and Isabel Gertler. Ours is an interdisciplinary operation, drawing on chemistry, botany, art and fashion design. Sustainability and public outreach are core themes guiding our agenda as a business and creative practice. This is realized by working primarily with recycled (or ‘up-cycled’) second-hand garments and linens. By doing so, we’re disrupting the increasingly wasteful cycle of clothing production and destruction. In 2019, Windeyer Studio broke ground on our own dye-garden. Home-grown flowers now supplement our foraged and salvaged dye materials, which include both local/native plant species and food waste. We have two major avenues for public outreach: small-group workshops held in our studio, and at local crafts markets, where we educate the general public about the potential for flowers and botanicals to produce colours and patterns on cloth.
