I like history. Yeah I know I am a little nerdy. Making connections, especially where there doesn't seem to be any commonality is a thing for me. One day I made this incredible leap in my head that I could dye yarn inspired by my ancestors personally and broadly. As an African-American whose history is not traceable past 5 generations, I have often wondered who my ancestors where. I also wonder how; how did they do it? How did they survive to make sure I could be here?
Inspired by my ancestors' strength and endurance, this yarn dyeing adventure is an attempt to answer these questions. Through, creative process, I explore and highlight our history. The history of humans who survived.
Join me for the ride. It will be sometimes sad and frustrating but we will learn a lot.
