Spend an afternoon exploring the fundamentals of indigo dyeing. Led by Office HoursIn Focus artist Rachel DuVall, participants will learn the process step-by-step using the same small batch tools and materials DuVall employs in her art practice. Each participant will create patterns by printing and drawing with a nori resist paste before dyeing fabrics in an indigo vat. At the end of the workshop, participants will take home their own 15" x 15" linen indigo dyed fabric.

About Rachel DuVall

DSC00342.jpg

Through her hand-woven works, Rachel DuVall’s geometric compositions explore the grid structure inherent to weaving, the result of the warp and weft fibers intersecting. By using repetition of line and shape, DuVall’s work investigates the relationship between the rigid framework required to produce a weaving and the flexible, imperfect nature of the resulting material. Within this repetition, the subtlest differences become amplified.  DuVall received her BFA in Fiber from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2008 and currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
