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
I'll be showing wearable work tomorrow 12/2 and Saturday, 12/3 - visit @out.of.our.hands.art.sale for times and location (and @petalunacollection for more images from this facet of my practice).🌀
Back home and back to work but still thinking about beautiful Guanajuato, its surrounding wilds, and friends (old and new) there. I have been to this City many times but there is always more to experience, learn, and love. I look forward to returning as soon as I can!
Some views from Guanajuato City 🏼☀️🌸
Between wearable projects, more pigment exploration. Indigo, ink, gold leaf (detail)
Banana leaf transition.
Stayed long enough for each of us to check the other out before disappearing. 🌀
Remnants of a tree long fallen have become host to a wide variety of shelf-fungi...slowly breaking things down.
In-progress. Not sure whether I'm working towards or working through, but either way, evolving.
