Biographical or historical data
Constance La Lena was born in Ind. in 1934. She first learned how to sew by watching her mother mending clothes. La Lena learned how to weave from Her third grade teacher, Miss Lyons. While in college, she studied painting, drawing, print making, photography, and fashion design. After college, La Lena opened a weaving studio (1971). where she formulated her own dyes from industrial powders, yielding over 500 reproducible colors of high light- and wash-fastness for wool and silk. She also formulated an additional 500 reproducible colors for cotton, rayon, and linen. A collection of her hand-woven fashion clothing was selected for inclusion in the Craft Multiples exhibition at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution. The exhibtion opened in Washington D.C. in 1975 and later toured the U.S. until 1979.
