Featured Artist : Catherine Ruhl


Artist Bio / Statement

My name is Catherine Ruhl, I am a textile artist and teacher.  I specialize in traditional shibori indigo dyeing techniques.  I live in Brooklyn New York and I’m inspired by street fashion and trends I see all around me.  I love shibori because the blue is so beautiful and the reveal is always so exciting.

I have my own dyeing practice, sell shibori products, and I also teach workshops.  I love to help others tap into their creativity.  I also enjoy collaborating with other artists to see what we create and engage with my fellow maker community.  I have sold at the West Elm, Pottery Barn, Brooklyn Flea, Artists and Fleas and online. 

I use the Jacquard pre reduced indigo crystals, soda ash, and thiox for my indigo vats.  I like a deep blue, so I do a 2 parts indigo, 2 parts soda ash, and 1 part thiox ratio.  The amount depends on the weight of the fabric.  The patterns you can make are endless.  I tend to use things from the hardware store to clamp and tie the fabric.  I post videos on my instagram of how to fold and tie the fabric.
