The last Maine Event day 1



We had a fabulous weekend for the last Maine Event. 


The "plan" for the weekend was to dye our kakishibu fabric and hang to dry so we could have them ready for the next day for creating marks. I always have an indigo vat if anyone want to dip. The vat won out and we didn't dye the fabric til the end of the day. It turned into an all day indigo marathon. There were only inches of indigo left in the vat at the end of the day.






Reminded Marcella and I of "Christina's World" if you are familiar with Andrew Wyeth's painting below.

How many times have I posted this type of photo? Indigo frenzie




Batiking before an indigo dip.





More batik and two people from "witness protection" who didn't want their faces shown.



Batik with wax applied with a plastic knife. She did a lot of images on cloth along this line (no pun)

    1. Trust me when I say I know I am not in charge. Letting people go in their own direction is a gift to them.
