Day 2, Fabric Dyeing
You are right, that is yarn! Cotton yarn,,, anything goes in my Fabric Dyeing Classes. I encourage everyone to bring added items, Pearl Cotton, Cheese Cloth, an old T. shirt.
Nancy looks like she is rolling and tying a roast. I guess this is a bit like cooking, we do use measuring cups and measuring spoons. But that is as far as that goes, no hot oven..
Below is the Saturday Group... missed some photos of the gals on Friday..
This time I was not up on taking as many photos,, sorry, was a bit busy.. We usually finish "playing" about noon. Everyone brought something to add to a salad lunch. I provide the lettuce, bread, cookies, and juice.. It was delightful, great conversation, and no duplicates of the tasty additions, mushrooms, nuts, raisins, tuna, crunches, tomatoes, and a variety of dressings. etc..
See, no one has any dyes on them, this was a very tidy group! Last year I had to separate our more rambunctious gals, as they started to paint each other.. all in FUN.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
