During the time Stephanie Robertson’s Making Your Mark fabric printing and dyeing class was visiting Daryl Lancaster’s Inkle Weaving class, the comment was made about the separate paths each group was taking in their creativity journeys. One was somewhat unstructured while the other had a more specific framework , but both allowed for experimentation and inventiveness.
Simple screen printing, direct painting, ice dyeing, indigo dyeing and resist dyeing were just some of the techniques used in the Making Your Mark class. Fabrics for art pieces, quilts, garments and trim were singing with all the colors of the rainbow!
Daryl’s students started with a basic inkle-woven band and then went on to more creative and intricate techniques including supplemental warps and wefts, pick up and name drafts. So many ideas took shape in such a short time on such a simple loom!
Here’s to your creative journeys, whatever path they follow!
