Five days (and evenings) of studio time at Campbell in a large studio with lots of light, four sinks, and clotheslines inside and out. We stamped, screened, waxed, painted, dyed, and generally made a big mess. But what fun! I loved seeing what beautiful cloth came out of this workshop; some of it from people who didn't even know they were artists! It was a real treat to meet people I had already "known" from lists we're on together or from the blog. Here's Judy Carpenter showing off her work, with Mayme Mitcham in the background. Don't they look like they are having a terrible time? Mayme in one of her more serious moments...making contemplative work. And Belinda, giving one of her pieces another layer of paint. Rebecca Cox's piece generated an interesting critique and a discussion of what differentiates art cloth or a whole cloth piece from yardage. We never did finish the class discussion, but it gave us all food for thought.
