at the museum

On Friday, a group of us who normally meet together anyway were at the museum putting in studio time, working on whole cloth. Rachel is going back into her piece and is concentrating so hard that I couldn't resist the photo. I can see that this will be part of a series.

The next day I was back at the museum to give a soy wax workshop. A couple of the participants had worked before in batik, but never with soy wax. Their work was unusually diverse and it was a lot of fun to see some of the results. Wow! A real batik fish!!
Martha's brushwork took a completely different form; here she is about to combine the next screen with some mesh she brought with her.

Janet's piece was done with wax resist and then she added a layer of dye for a more abstract result.
One day was enough for just a taste, but everybody took some something beautiful and interesting.
