During her residency at Constellation Studios September 12-17, Astrid Hilger Bennett invites community members to participate in indigo dyeing using her indigo vat. This engagement intends to complement her own work as a long time “printmaker” and also foster community and awareness. Bennett uses indigo dyed fabrics in a variety of ways, including book arts, where the fabric is stiffened with matte medium, adding India ink painting. She will be incorporating printing into her work with her residency. https://www.astridhilgerbennett.com/
By appointment, area residents will be able to experience the indigo vat, trying fabric or paper samples of their own with guidance from the artist. Samples can then be applied to book art projects and more. Appointment schedule TBD, registrants will be contacted to set up appointment times.
