We showed how to set up a screen for deconstructing (lower left) and later tried to print the used botanical screens as a resist.
My demo piece
The problem with a workshop is that the students take their work home to wash out and you don't get a chance to see the work finished. I totally didn't take any pictures of the stencils or all the botanicals. Neither did I take pictures of their large pieces.
I really feel like I am the creator of these scarves because I built the screens from wood and screen, created the designs on the screens, mixed up the dye, cut the blank rayon infinity scarves open, silk screened the, washed them, ironed them and sewed them back into circles. It took me an entire day to screen four scarves so it is very labor intensive. They are scrumptious even if I say so myself and are a delight to wear (like whipped cream) and versatile, (just turn the scarf for a color to match. They are available at the Grasshopper Shop in Searsport if you are local to mid-coast Maine or on my website HERE
They are 20" X 70" and they are rayon, soft and drapey
Quite a few years ago I made my partner, Brian, a yellow Quilt-as-you-go for his bed. I can't find any pictures except this one of Niamh on the bed. This is one of the reasons it needs replacing (smile).
I actually bought a kit for make a quilt but I hate traditional quilt making so much I decided to just make some half square triangle, build up a center and add something for borders to fit a double bed. The kit was a great buy just for the fabric (I think I got it half price) but I didn't like all of the colors so I just used the ones I liked. They are all solids. I cut 9" squares and got 32 half square triangles out of each fat quarter. I am muddling my way through this project which is beyond boring. Here are progress pictures so far.
