Chesapeake Fibershed Meet-up: Kenya Miles of Blue Light Junction
January 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Come meet Kenya Miles, the multi-disciplinary artist and alchemist behind Traveling Miles Studio, a one-woman textile and fine art studio utilizing sustainable materials from earth pigments to natural dyes. Kenya’s work honors ancient practices while harmoniously drawing on a distinctive contemporary voice. From the valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico to the red clay roads of Ntonso, Ghana, Kenya’s process is a ledger of years of wandering and apprenticing around the world.
Closer to home, Kenya is the founder of Blue Light Junction, a natural dye studio, alternative color lab, retail space, dye garden, and educational facility in central Baltimore. Blue Light Junction focuses on growing, processing, and preserving the history of natural dyes and their artistic, practical, and commercial applications. To register for this meet-up, click here.
