I'm home! It's been an exciting two weeks, learning the science of dyeing fabric from the amazing Carol Soderlund. If you ever get a chance to take one of her classes, do so. She is brilliant!
Here she is during the "Think Silk!" class showing off one of her pieces:
The two large pieces in this photo are Wendy's and mine. Wendy's is on the left, mine is on the right:
Pieces by other students in the class:
After the "Think Silk!" class, Wendy and I were joined by Nancy (another member of studio Q) for the "Color Mixing for Dyers" class. It was every bit as fabulous as "Think Silk!" I really feel that I can dye any piece of cotton or silk with predictable results.
The Crow Timber Frame Barn is a wonderful place. Nancy and her husband, John, were very welcoming, and Margaret, the chef, fed us tasty and nutritious meals that kept us going full strength. I hope to go back there soon.
