Indigo dyer and fiber artist Darius Homayounpour of Cooperstown will give an artist’s talk and trunk show on Thursday, November 4th, at 5:30 pm. The program will cover the various processes he uses in shibori and indigo dyeing.
Darius will demonstrate techniques for a few essential patterns and discuss some of the whys and wherefores of working with an oxidative (vat) dye. He will also display examples of his contemporary art practice. Important influences include his training in Asian textile forms (especially Japan and Korea) as well as textile conservation.
This will also be an opportunity to sign up for instruction in Darius’ studio in Cooperstown.
