Rowland Ricketts Lecture

We will be investigating the phenomenon of color in Elements of Visual Thinking, as well as talking about what it means to be an artist and to make art.

As part of this, I highly encourage you to attend the following lecture by Rowland Ricketts, whose fiber work involves and revolves around natural dye. Rowland states "Using gathered and cultivated plants as dyes I transfer their color to cloth with traditional dyeing techniques honed over centuries. The colors obtained are enriched by each plant's historical, cultural, and physical substance as well as by the connection across time to all who ever worked within these traditions."
