Studio Stories: Mags Kandis

In late March I was in Prince Edward County for pleasure and took the opportunity to visit and interview three artists, including maker and marker Mags Kandis, whose makes and marks with Indigo+Rust, and is exploring botanicals. I look forward to seeing her new work this summer at the Wellington Market.

Listen on Amherst Island Radio on Wednesday at 6pm or Friday at 1pm for our chat about dyeing, marking, the Wellington Market, and more. You can find Mags Kandis in person at the Wellington Market (occasionally she is not there, so if you’re going specifically to see her work, contactMags first!) from May long weekend to the September (Saturdays 8am-1pm) or online on her website, Instagram @mags_kandis, and on facebook on indigonrust.

Listen anytime on the iTunes podcast or the googlePlay podcast. Amherst Island Radio show archive can be found here.
