Holiday Party – Dec. 16, 2016

Our party happened to celebrate a massive rain and wind storm and a few could not make it, but a jolly time was had by all who managed to struggle through. Here are selected  pictures from the event.

Creative Endeavors – Sat., Aug. 13, 2016

We gathered at the home of Betsy for Show and Tell, and an experience with ice-dying. We have pictures only of tubs of fabrics covered with ice, and sprinkled with dye – since the tubs had to be taken home to cure for 24 hours before rinsing, washing and drying to reveal our creations. Catch our results on subsequent posts!  First, Show and Tell:

Showed us one of six large cotton napkins begun recently with wax resist and elements from nature. She added drawing with pointed permanent markers.

Elizabeth

Constructed from a recent two-meeting project in which we (step 1) dyed nine different fibers with personally chosen colors, and (step 2) displayed them on felt of our choice, thus creating in most cases scarves. The photo shows a simple sampler, embellished with found and created objects, resulting in a wall hanging.

and of course – some tubs:

In this, a silk scarf has been placed on TOP of the ice-and-dye

layers, in order to see whether some or all colors would seep upward, as well as trickling downward with the melting ice.

July 21, 2016 – “Bring to Analyze” Program

This program plan was for each attendee to bring several samples of weaving “around the house”, anything from a mass-produced dish cloth to souvenir craft weaving from another country. We divided into two manageable groups, passed them around, and shared our individual understandings. The results were interesting, surprising and sometimes mysterious to the max, so for fun we are posting some photos from that evening:

From time to time we get to see new creations by Barbara Shapiro, so here is a page dedicated to her. Be assured, this is a work – and probably also a title – in progress.
