My fingernails are purple and my studio is a mess of red and blue fabric. This past week I've been up to my elbows in indigo and madder, making a set of textile pieces to showcase at Artisanal LA, a foodie/growie/eaty event that is going on in downtown LA this weekend. Tara from Silver Lake Farms and I are sharing a booth to talk about the new plants that we've been growing over the summer. She is pitching a new line of micro greens, looking for new restaurant clients, and I am talking about the dye plants and madder that we've been growing.
If you are in LA, come visit. There are also mounds of cupcakes, pickles, tamales, seeds and great demos; yesterday, I got to see a half a big being butchered out by Lindy and Grundy, a new butcher shop that is opening soon over on Fairfax.
