Time for a little catch-up
(no, not ketchup
Tomorrow, is class #3 of my five-session class, Fabric Painting, Printing, and Stitching to Tell a Story with Cloth
(or what I like to call Story Cloth
). So far we've been focusing in on story settings. This week we invite the characters into the picture. My students already have plans for where there stories are heading. It's so exciting!
We did some gelatin printing last week. Gelatin printing brings out the young explorer in me! First, is the fact that the gelatin plate is soft, and cool to the touch...should I say sensual
...!? Then there is the constant surprise of the beautiful ghost print
. Layering prints is when things really start to sing...when the stories start to come out...
More to come as we forge ahead.
On Saturday, I taught, Inspired by Nature: Creative Fabric Designs
. I had three students new to painting and printing fabric and one continuing student. It was a fun day, though I jam-packed the class with techniques. As I continue to teach, I'm learning (still learning!) that sometimes it's better to teach fewer techniques and let the students delve into them. I'm thinking of re-structuring this class for the future.
