Hello.  

I am an optimistic documenter, educator, explorer, artist and yogi.
I have a fondness for words: spoken, written, sung, designed.

Episode 5

I talk to Inanna Orchid, a fiber artist from Portland, Oregon who has found a second home in Savannakhet, Laos. She learned the art of batik making in Thailand and now has a home studio in Laos. She sources her fabric from local weavers and takes inspiration from Hindu gods and the world around her.   

 Inanna has an adjustable PVC frame she uses to stretch fabric she uses in her batiks. Here she uses hot wax to create a resistance pattern. The background color will show through when she washes out the wax.
