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
Receptives 1-6. To be continued.🌀
Busy hands. 🌀
Little process reel - #waxresist #indigodyed
I'll be featuring my indigo-dyed artisan apparel in a group show this weekend (5/6-7). #grantparkatl neighborhood/swipe left for show details and visit @petalunacollection for more images.🌀
Working on multiple streams of work including indigo dyeing for wearables, stitching, other cloth enrichment, 3-d construction, etc...so everything takes more time 🤔😆- and hey, is it already the end of March?? For more about my little artisan apparel line, please check out @petalunacollection.
Starting a new round of indigo-dyed cloth for wearable and other work.
Found this #anole outside on my studio window ledge, alas fatally injured and transitioning to dust, vine tendril still wrapped around its leg. I moved it to this leaf to photograph and its color change was even more apparent. Disappeared from the leaf later, presumably still fresh enough to nourish another creature. Assume it is a #greenanole which are now more prevalent here - north of the Georgia fall line - and often slip into my studio for a visit. 🌀
