WORKSHOPS WITH ENVISION UNLIMITED
While in residence at Westtown Center, Claire set up an indigo vat and led a series of workshops exploring the dye and various dye techniques including shibori, block resists and batik. The workshops culminated in a series of indigo-dyed fabrics which will be used in the construction of collaboratively-designed quilts in Westtown’s sewing program.
