Indigo Dye Pot Luck – June 29, 4-6pm
Kala Artists’ Project Space
2990 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley

Join Kala Fellowship artist, Margaret Leininger, for an “Indigo Dye Pot Luck” on Saturday, June 29 from 4-6pm. Learn about the history of indigo dye, the material process, and experiment to see what it might yield!

Things to bring:


Dyeable material: garments, non-synthetic fabric, and/or experimental materials!


Maggie Leininger is Kala Art Institute’s 2013 Social Practice Fellowship Artist, and is in-residence at KALA during the month of June. She exhibits her work nationally in traditional art venues but excels in positioning work in site-situational settings that explore the connection between meaning, placement and public interaction. During her time at KALA, Maggie is working on a year-long national project, The Whole Nine Yards, a situational weaving performance across the United States.

While at KALA, Maggie’s primary goal is to make connections with artists and organizations which promote sustainable practices and alternative creative communities, and support a more open-source philosophy of making. Since arriving in Berkeley, Maggie has participated in the Maker Faire in San Mateo, where she demonstrated natural dyeing and hand-spinning, and has already begun to forge ties here with local organizations such as the California Fibershed and Full Belly Farms. Future events to be announced!
