The Magic of Indigo by Kathleen O'Grady

The Magic of Indigo by Kathleen O'Grady

For those of us who have had the pleasure of dyeing with indigo there is a beauty and magic to this natural dye, derived from the indigo plant. If you work with indigo, you don't just dye with it, you have a relationship with it. It is a complicated dye that takes years to master. Indigo is not just a colour; it is a slow process to produce the colour and dye with it. Dyers can (and do) spend years dedicated to just this one colour because of its amazing qualities.

The Back Story on Something Brewing by Cindy Hoppe

My work is grounded in prairie landscape, having morphed from a painter in my twenties into a fabric explorer specialist in my thirties and then back to landscape again in my fifties.  It was informed by my mother’s journey as well.  Myrna Harris and I were each other’s artistic support system; photographing ideas on country drives, thrifting materials, transforming them through dye, thread and quilting, and eventually hanging them on the wall.
