After learning the basics, there’s no boundaries to what you can create. Experimenting builds new opportunities and that was definitely part of our last two classes. We start by continuing with a few more fabrics; direct painted, dyed, printed and screened from Stephanie Robertson’s Making Your Mark class.
A family tree branched out on one piece, and after preparing the first stage of this mountain scene, it was definitely time to sit back and admire it with feet up!
An idea proposed by one of Stephanie’s students and carried out in class this year was to hand-dye cotton that could be used in the Washington Island-made Quilts of Valor. Each student participated to create this array of fabrics for these meaningful quilts.
Farewell, indigo dyeing (at least until Donna Kallner’s Natural Dye Retreat in October)!
If you’re Beading Without Boundaries, as they did in Diane Fitzgerald’s class, what are you working on? Well…anything and everything, with a lot of inspiration provided by Diane along with that of each student’s chosen artist.
From the tiniest materials, comes beauty to behold and wear. (Burger Night never looked so good!)
The flamingos may have migrated south, west or east, but the Sophie Studio nest will be ready for next summer’s return. It may only be seven days out of the year when the whole flock is here, but they are a wonderful seven days!
