We're takin' it easy this evening and don't really have any homework, except to 'have a plan' for the art quilt we intend to construct using some of our fabrics. Jan has instructed that we now must have a goal when we are dyeing....no more playing around, not that that wasn't important in the first two days of class! It's been truly wonderful: I've learned so much, all 21 of us get along beautifully, and the facility is pretty phenomenal....and should I tell you about the meals???? Margaret Wolf is an incredible chef. She feeds us very healthy, fresh, and delicious meals....all with a smiling face....and she knows our names!
This photo is of a small portion of the dye studio (our classroom is next door and equally as spacious). Here, some of my classmates are doing direct dye applications to their fabric. The pieces will dry and then be manipulated.
This is not the most complimentary photo of either Nancy or Jan, but I wanted to show you our dye pots while they are 'cooking'. Jan has a very methodical system, and after
one or two go rounds, we all know our rolls, and do well with the system.
Here's another shot of the dye studio with all of our mechanical resist implements laid out to dry.
OK, this is going to look a bit crazy, but I wanted
to show you the two pieces that I completed today that make my heart sing the very most. Unfortunately Blogger is not letting me do that, without posting more and more pics of one of the pieces. So please bear with me here! I hope you can get the idea. Aren't they pretty!
Of course my classmates, like Gerrie's friends Carol and Karen, are making some phenomenal pieces as well, but do you think I'm going to show you theirs, here? LOL!
