Today I taught African Influences: Textile Inspirations at G Street Fabrics.

It was a joy to teach these four women. Each one of them has a very unique way of working with color and design.

Seeing this feast of colorful African-inspired fabrics made my day!

Looks like a great day spent amongst lovely colour - especially for me Winifred W's last two with the red on grey and pale green. The combination really sings.ReplyDelete
I also love Winifred's sophisticated color combo. She over-painted the black with yellow and even the printed Adinkra symbols are a more than one color. You can bet that I had a big smile on my face!Delete
How much fun it must have been! These designs are alive. Strangely, I feel most attracted to Barbara's tan prints on yellow. They immediately took me on a trip to the desert, the blinding sun, the crisp shadows and the heat. And Camilla's reds and greens are singing!ReplyDelete
I have to say that I just loved seeing how these fabrics turned out. Everyone seemed so engaged and willing to play...a great group!Delete
These are all wonderful, and I especially enjoyed Barbara's designs! I'll be using the fabric you sent me into a post soon. Lots happening here lately, and I've not spent as much time blogging but it is overdue.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see what you do with the Violet fabric, Cindi!Delete
It was a great day with an inspiring group of students!Delete
