It’s been seven days of experimentation with all kinds of techniques, fibers and color in these three classes. Starting last Saturday, the students in Stephanie Robertson’s class, Making Your Mark, made their mark at Sievers by dyeing and printing fabrics. From ice dyeing to the indigo pot, silk screening to direct painting, potato dextrin to gel printing, the fabrics made in class adorned the clotheslines and the tables in the Walter Studio.
In Ellen Graf’s Symmetry in Design quilting class, students brought ideas for quilts or quilts in progress. With their fabrics, quilt design exercises and help from Ellen, these were some of the quilts in the Sophie Studio during the week of August 10 – 15:
This brings us to our three-day class in Latvian Mittens with Sandy De Master and Mary Germain. How could you choose which patterns and colors to use from all these wonderful samples?
Students will be working until Sunday morning finishing their mini-mittens and planning an adult-sized pair. It doesn’t matter that it’s summer, it’s always “mitten time” for knitters!Share Sievers with Friends...
