Yoshiko Wada Workshop at SPIN Conference

The two day workshop with Yoshiko Wada was crammed with many techniques that were fascinating and gave interesting dyeing results. We stitched, we tied, we de-gummed silk and dyed.

Design Challenge!


I didn't pre-wash the fabric. I didn't heat set the metallic gutta. Now I have leaks everywhere! I knew this was going to happen, lazy me. Or maybe I needed a "design challenge?" I will sleep on it and see what inspires me tomorrow....

First ever nuno piece!

Click here to see Kathy Colt's blog where you'll see me working hard on this piece. Click here, too.


This is the result of my first ever nuno workshop. It was lots of fun although I admit I am very sore from all the rolling. You can't see it in the photo, but the silk gauze background fabric is sheer and has become rusched (pleated).

Bamboo stalks II

10"x10" acrylic on canvas board
I like this one much, much better than the previous bamboo painting. I'll have to repaint the other one and toss the original.
SOLD! Thank you so much!
