The lonely artist working in isolation may exist in novels but I find it’s hard to stay isolated. As I join more quilting groups I get more exposure to great resources. My latest discovery is the Praxis Fiber Workshop in Cleveland, Ohio.
It’s an offshoot of the Textile Arts Alliance (TAA) of the Cleveland Institute of Art, and is meant to be both a neighborhood resource and a studio for fiber artists. The old storefront is jammed with looms, lots of worktables, deep sinks, a washer and dryer, lockers, and more I didn’t explore. It also serves as a gallery.
Lots of pleating and tieing later, we dipped our bundles into the indigo pot.
I suspect the color differences may be due to different fabrics. Indigo dyeing is just one of the classes on offer at Praxis.
Here’s a piece Jessica dyed that combines rusting and indigo.
