I am having such a good time at QSDS -- catching up with old friends and making new ones. I am sharing a suite with Rosalie Dace and Terry Jarrard-Dimond, both of whom are delights to spend time with and whose work is beautiful. Terry and I have been online friends for many years and are finally getting to spend time together! That is truly a bonus. Rosalie and I have taught in the same places at the same time many times and it is always a joy to see her.
Tonight I had a chance to catch up with Deborah Fell and Kevin Womack -- two very talented artists whom I have not seen in eons. It was an unexpected pleasure.
Two days of printing; another half-day tomorrow, and then two days of making something with those printed fabrics. Here are just a few of the beauties my students produced in the last two days.
As for me, I was perfectly happy to supervise and give advice (solicited and uncolicited), and to buy some African and Indian batiks from Becky at St. Theresa's Textile Trove.
Tomorrow, I will have more photos, but these are just a few of the wonderful pieces printed here.
This is what happens when there are no rules and people are shown a demo and are then left to their own devices!
This is one of Carol's vibrant pieces.
Would you ever believe that Judy K. had never printed before?
Here is one of Diane's pieces after she added her own touches with the syringe.
More tomorrow. I had better get some rest. But in case you want to check out the work of some of the artists I mentioned at the beginning of the post...
