I spent a whole day dyeing every bit of cotton and velvet fabric in sight, preparing a great stash for future projects. All of this fabric has been dyed with procion dyes. This was a wonderful day with textile artist, Roberta Hodgson.
On Saturday and Sunday, we spent the days with the wonderfully talented dolll maker, Ann Maullin who showed us her techniques of wrapping armatures. While this workshop has been popular in the past both in Australia and in the USA, it was inspiring to see everyone using Ann's techniques to create unique figurative art/soft sculptures. Mine isn't finished yet, but I have visions of some sort of water sprite, I think.
