For the first few days on a walk over to the studio and finding no one there, the question was… where is Donna Kallner’s Local Color to Wear class going next? Off on field trips to Percy Johnson County Park, the Stavekirke, Jackson Harbor Ridges and more, students found in all those places the local color and photographs used in their class projects.
The basis for learning, experimentation were their own photos, ones taken on the Island (like the bracelet above with the image of the Stavekirke roof as background), natural dyes, sun and thermofax screen printing on fabric. Combined with found natural materials, beads and stitches, the pieces took shape.
A lavender-filled sachet, book covers, bracelets, pins, bookmarks and small art pieces, along with Island field trip adventures keep the memory of creative days close at hand. Click here for Donna’s own ‘travelogue’ of the class as shared from her Instagram page.
These Local Color projects from class and the local color along an Island roadside all say “summer”!
