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

Processed (steamed, wax removed, washed, rinsed and dried). Matchbook arrangements of two separate but similar hue sets. I’m feeling a decidedly kaleidoscopic vibe from this wave of work...☀️
Continuing my wax-resist interlude. This cloth is for my 2021 wearable collection (see @petalunacollection for more).
More painted wax-resist samples (freshly applied dye paste).
Painted wax-resist samples, set 1 (before steaming and washing - so super-saturated!).
