Daren Pitts Redman is a nationally known quilt artist and has been featured on HGTV’s That’s Clever. To best capture color in her textile wall hangings, she begins by taking photographs for inspiration. Daren then designs, hand dyes, paints and pole wraps her own fabrics. Working in her studio barn, Daren also uses the Japanese Shibori technique to tie, clamp and resist the fabric through an immersion dye process to create patterns. Finally, she cuts and sews fabric pieces together to complete her wall hangings. For the series, Daren will design a new series of textile wall hangings using her hand-dyed fabric.
