Kayla Powers – Cultivating a Place based Art practice

Kayla Powers (b. 1988) is a place-based fiber artist living and working in Detroit, Michigan.

As an artist and educator, Kayla Powers makes ecologically focused textile art with and about the living world. Through the traditional practices of foraging, dyeing, weaving, and quilting, she explores the common threads of our shared humanity and what it means to be here now. The materials she works with – cotton, linen, wool, copper – come from the earth and ground her practice in time and place. The colors change with the season as she dyes fabric and yarn with plants. Her work comes from a place of intuition, curiosity, connection, reverence, and from ancestral knowledge expressed by hand.
