I took a two day workshop on Shibori andIndigo dying with Linda Campbell at Fiber on a Whim this weekend. Linda was a fantastic teacher. She went over making a vat (we made two), history of both (including a slide show). It was wonderful. I will try to put up a few more examples later.

Another one of my pieces! You can just wash the soy wax out, much easier than real wax!

I took a two day soy wax batik class at Fiber on a Whim. Very easy and a lot of fun.

Block of Seagulls was my submission to the First Fast Friday Challenge. The idea behind the challenge is that on the last Friday of the month a theme and a design element is posted. You then have a week to design and complete a small format piece of fiber art.
The name was my friend Rebecca's idea. Yes, I love the '80's.

My New Adventure

No picture for this, but I wanted to document that I have signed up for the City & Guild, Level 3 Patchwork and Quiting Certification Course with Linda Kremshall's DesignMatters I can't wait. I hear that this is a very challenging program but isn't that what it is all about - challenging yourself as an artist. It seems that every time I open a book that "Wows" me, the author/artist has been trained or is a teacher in one of these courses.
