    A Long Walk Through the North End is a collection of textures, colors, plants, shapes, and patterns that I recognize as home. It is made of natural and secondhand materials and is speaking the language of a quilt. The fabric piece and the painted wall behind it are an exploration of internal and external landscapes, place-making, and the interstices between the built environment and the living world.

    Item is located in Detroit, MI. Local pickup available. Domestic shipping is available for an additional fee of $100. Local delivery available for an additional fee.

    Kayla Powers is a place-based artist and naturalist living and working in the North End of Detroit. She make ecologically focused fiber art with and about the living world. Through the traditional practices of foraging, dyeing, weaving, and quilting, Kayla explores the common threads of our shared humanity and what it means to be here now. Her work comes from a place of intuition, curiosity, connection, reverence, and from ancestral knowledge expressed by hand.
