up for air

Can it already be Saturday? I haven't had a minute to blog since early this week but am determined to catch up as much as I can tonight. What a week! I hate trying to recap after so much time has gone by, but I'll do the best I can. I already told you what a fun and talented group this was. Days 3-4, after having printed lots of fabric, we worked on what to do with it. One of the challenges was to work relatively small, using fabric we'd made during the previous days, combined with others if we wished, to begin new work. Two of the participants used this photo I'd taken in Belgium to jump-start new work. The results were stunning -- and totally different from one another. Each captures the essence of the picture and each artist is speaking in her own voice. Here is Liz Kettle with her interpretation.

And below, Lili Christensen with hers.

Sheryll Robbins with her small piece.Below, Franchi Rosenfeld's piece.

Wish I had room for more, or that all my photos had come out well (they never do) - but you get the picture (ouch!). By now, it is Sunday morning (I was too tired to finish this yesterday) but after breakfast, onto the next adventure.

I'm growing just a little bit envious because I don't know when I'll be able to take a workshop with you...and I'm greedy...I want to take a week long workshop :)

Keep having fun!

You wouldn't like to come to Germany to give a class, would you? The results from that shield (which actually gives direction to the next possible water source for the fire brigade) are so diverse and interesting! I really envy people being able to learn with you.
