Local, season, natural dyes! This is a photo of nine plants foraged/grown here in Detroit that I used to dye fiber during my 30 Local Dye Plants Project.*
Over the next year, I will be studying local natural dye plants in Detroit, dyeing fiber and weaving a series of tapestries that will be hung in an outdoor exhibition on the Dequindre Cut. As a recipient of the 2019 Knight Arts Challenge, I was granted funds to work with that I will need to match. You can read more about the project here.
Each photo is 8 x 8" and comes unframed.
*A note that this photo includes an avocado seed which is not local to Detroit but it balanced out the photo. :P
