It is hard to believe that a month ago that I was in Halifax at Quilt Canada, and I've never shown you the results of the workshops I took. In my defense, I've only been home a couple of weeks, and the box of projects arrived back about a week after I did, and the weather hasn't cooperated for picture taking, and I guess I could go on...
Without further ado,
Making Faces with Susan Tilsley Manley This was fun! We started with a photograph and reproduced it in fabric. I didn't get this one finished, but I will!
Then there was a workshop with Anna Hergert using indigo The Power of Blue and White: Ancient Indigo - this was a lot of fun, and I will be doing more of it - it is so neat to watch it change from a greenish colour as it comes out of the dye vat, to the wonderful indigo as it reacts to the air. We did some shibori style resists, and while they take some time to prepare, you get such wonderful patterns. I can see more happening along these lines!
The last workshop I took was with Gunnel Hag, The Power of Pattern. Another super fun class, using her Colourvie system and everyday and found items we did some painting, stenciling, printing and stamping - do you have any idea how many neat designs you can get from a potato masher???
Not sure what I'm going to do with my wonderful pieces, but I'll come up with something!
