This past weekend’s workshop was loaded with creative energy and enthusiasm. It was a delight to see each piece unfold from layout to completion and I was (and still am) inspired by the intensity and attention that everyone brought to their projects. As you can see from the gallery below, the results were wonderful! Thanks to the participants, GiGi, Hellenne and Libby who made my experience as a facilitator sheer joy!
Next in a series.
Processed (steamed, wax removed, washed, rinsed and dried). Matchbook arrangements of two separate but similar hue sets. I’m feeling a decidedly kaleidoscopic vibe from this wave of work...☀️
Continuing my wax-resist interlude. This cloth is for my 2021 wearable collection (see @petalunacollection for more).
More painted wax-resist samples (freshly applied dye paste).
Painted wax-resist samples, set 1 (before steaming and washing - so super-saturated!).
Cut/paste/splice/match/reverse/replace/filter - playing with images of wax-resisted and dyed paper as I regroup for a new round of work.
Natural dye workshop on my mind...a peek at some of the dyes we’ll be working with on March 20th.
