the Gregg is asking….

Adire stitch resist

“Have you seen the some of the indigo pieces in the current Gregg exhibition ‘Measure of Earth: Textiles and Territory in West Africa?’ Interested in hands on learning? Indigo Dye Magic is a workshop that Janine LeBlanc and Susan Oliver Fennell are co-teaching at Pullen Arts Center starting October 24. There is still room in the class to sign-up. Learn more here:  https://itode.wordpress.com/upcoming-workshops/”

That question was posed on the Gregg Museum’s facebook page where I found it first thing this morning.  So I thought to add my own “reply” or comment – it’s an opportunity to learn about the materials and the process.  It’s an opportunity to experience it, hands on.

The image, a detail of one of those richly patterned cloths now on exhibit, contains the kind of imagery we could easily reference in this upcoming class.  The resist technique used in this piece is universal throughout the many cultures that have used (and still used) in their textile pattern making.

  Janine and I would be delighted to have you join us as we consider our explorations in indigo dyeing and shibori.
