Photo of the Week: Upholstery Dyeing

This is student Dev Flaherty and textiles instructor Jessica Green dipping wool cloth into madder (it was previously dyed yellow). The point of interest here, other than the great color, is that Dev was a student in the chair making Concentration in the wood studio. Annie Evelyn, who taught the wood class, is an upholsterer as well as a woodworker, and most of her students upholstered at least one of the chairs they made in the workshop. Several of them also spent some quality time in the textiles studio as Jessica generously helped them create custom colors for their upholstery fabric. This is just one of the many reasons it’s amazing to have so many different materials and processes happening at the same time.


This is the chair he made. It’s quite comfortable.
