Parliament the Boutique is proud to be the hosts for "Solar: A Harvest Dye Study" for ArtPrize 7!
Parliament founders Elyse Welcher and Megan Roach are the fiber-queens behind "Solar" and will be bringing the naturally dyed harvest home to Parliament with this time-based installation. Utilizing 9 different Michigan harvested dyes, this installation involves solar-dyeing, an ancient technique of dyeing that uses the suns rays to heat the dye material and fibers. During the course of the event, gallon jars of these dyes will be brewing in the window; samples of dyed fiber will be pulled from each jar, dried, and then woven into an on-site loom, thusly showing the gradient of developing color throughout the course of the 18 day event!
