Clark Art Presents Workshop on Textile Dyeing
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Saturday, Oct. 7, the Clark Art Institute invites visitors to explore how sound, color, and emotions resonate in a textile dyeing demonstration and hands-on workshop.
This free drop-in event begins at 2 pm on the Fernández Terrace.
Artists Emily Carris-Duncan, Eugene Lew, and Imani Uzuri lead a demonstration and workshop exploring how feelings, colors, water, voices, and sound resonate. Immerse textiles in indigo and goldenrod dye baths in an attempt to capture the ephemerality of emotions and concentrated vibrations. Water will be drawn from the grounds to create the dye baths shimmering in time with the subaquatic circulation of the Clark's reflecting pool. Participants' voices will arrange iron and alum salt patterns on Chladni plates to be impressed upon freshly dyed cloth. As twilight takes hold, Uzuri leads a collective song reflecting on the experience.
Free. Drop in any time until 6:30 pm. Textiles and cloth are provided. For those interested in working with dye baths, please dress accordingly. Rain moves the event to Sunday, Oct. 8 at 3:30 pm.
