I am happy to announce the second installment of my natural dye series at the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance. This time, we will look at two ways of achieving blue using natural Indigo pigment, one “chemical” and one “organic.” The synthetic pre-reduced indigo alternative will also be considered. This is a two-day workshop. We’ll build the vats on Day 1 and prepare samples for immersion, including pieces printed with a simple paste resist. Day 2 will be dedicated to using the vats, comparing and contrasting results. Saturday, February 8th through Sunday, February 9th. Both Sessions: 1-5 pm. For details visit: SEFAA Center/Indigo
Step by step, bit by bit. Eventually.
Studio cleaned and ready for the next wave of work. Time for a brief sit-down with pen and ink. Mind quieted (for the moment).
Highlights from 2021.
Adding to the mix…a new round of pieces contemplated with this bundle of cloth and fiber - all dyed with cutch, indigo w/iron modifier. But first, complete current work in progress!
Many of you know that my studio practice includes designing and building artisan apparel (@petalunacollection). I will be showing selected pieces from that body of work on Dec. 4th at #littletreeartstudios in Avondale, Ga. 11-6. After that, I’ll be open by appointment at my studio leading up to the winter holidays.🌀
A work in progress.
Seasonal entropic sampler. So much richness in decay.😌
