meanwhile...

This week has sped by so quickly that I can hardly believe we're almost at the end. I've been teaching since Saturday, almost nonstop. And by the time I'm back from the evening's activities, too tired to blog. Sorry 'bout that. The soy wax batik was a big hit, and the class did some very cool work. There were 25 people, so lots of variety -- and they just couldn't get enough. Once it stopped raining, it got hot and we were able to dry our pieces outside on the ground or on the line. I showed the class how to steam their fabric and we had the pot going for a couple of days. The steaming took out a lot of the wax and set the dye at the same time. Here's Connie opening her package!
Here are some other pieces, done and back on the wall.




Sue Kavanaugh batik'd her t-shirt and came to show it off the day after class was over. How cool is this?? She was delighted with the results and so were the rest of us.
Some of the students from the weekend class remained for the next class, which I will get to later. Off to breakfast!
