Last week I spent every day from 10-1 at Fleisher teaching the week-long Stitch and Surface intensive to 12 fabulous ladies. For the week I had a theme of photography as inspiration, but it branched out a bit and we squeezed a LOT of stuff into 15 hours of work over 5 days. We made:
- a doodle-inspired sampler to see how drawing marks and stitch marks correlate
- a cyanotype on fabric
- a shibori-dyed piece of fabric
- a handbound book to hold our handouts and sketches
- a final project utilizing our cyanotype fabric or something else
What a productive week! And what creativity and individuality! I've probably said this lots of times before, but I feel like I've done a good job if everyone's voice shines through the projects, and they don't all look the same. Now I've got to come up with something new and wonderful for the Fall session!!
