ART & SUSTAINABILITY

VisArts is partnering with the City of Rockville’s Division of Environmental Management to create a series of free lectures and workshops that pair visual art with sustainability practices. Artist and educator Rosa Sung Ji Chang kicked off the program in February with workshops on natural dyeing with indigo, upcycling, and garment mending.

In June and July, artist and educator Kenya Miles will present two online workshops focused on fixatives (known as mordants) and preparing fabric for natural dyeing, and will lead a discussion about Baltimore-based natural dye studio Blue Light Junction.
