Scarf Workshop for Landings Art Association

I had a great time down in Savannah visiting with my Mom and also teaching a scarf printing workshop with members of the Landings Art Association.

Students rolled and knotted scarves and painted them before unrolling
to reveal the designs. Here are some of the scarves drying...

After the scarves dried, we had lots of fun adding textures and printing with carved Speedy Carve and veggie blocks and craft foam blocks with adhesive foam stickers.

Students made sampler fabrics before printing their scarves.

This student used an ear of corn to create designs in paint and monoprinted her fabric!


Many students made brayer rubbings using hot glue on cardboard blocks (see my recent article in the February/March 2016 Quilting Arts Magazine, Create Quick-and-Easy Pattern Blocks Using Hot Glue pp. 76-79).

I had a lot of fun teaching this artistic group. Thanks, ladies!


  1. What a wonderful process! I love how the results of the first step are a bit of a mystery, yet that the artist has more say in the subsequent additions to the foundation...
    And how great that you were able to combine teaching the class with a visit with your Mom! It's always nice when things work out like that...

    1. Hi Lisa- Great to hear from you! I have to get back to blogging and checking out your wonderful blog...been busy! This was a fun group to teach...fearless and they enjoyed trying everything out.
