Studio Class – Inspiration

April 12, 2010
Now THAT was fun. Last week a fantastic group of ladies drove up from the Charleston South Carolina area and spent two days playing here with me in the Studio… and dining room and sun room. We basically took over the downstairs living area. We ate chocolate, played with paint, ate more chocolate, screen printed…. you get the idea. I had so much fun that I totally forgot to take out my camera. Arggg! 
I did get inspired though – teaching a technique that I haven’t taught for a very long time. Hey – as long as all of the supplies are out I might as well play. Here is a length of cloth that I dyed with heat transfer dyes. You mix up the disperse dyes which look kind of yucky and boring, play with them like paint on paper. When you turn them over and heat press them onto a synthetic fabric magic happens!
I’ve got the house put back together (and the kids immediately took it back apart of course!) Most of the studio stuff is put back away. I love having it all cleaned up. It stays that way for a bit since the kids don’t play in here. For some reason it makes me really want to get busy with the art. As soon as my “to do” list is taken care of tomorrow I’m going to reward myself with some art time.
And now might I ask a little favor of you? If you’ve had a class from me would you mind posting a one or two sentence review here? I need to put together some new teaching brochures and would love to include some testimonials. I’d really, really appreciate it! Really.

    I am assuming that the fabric is opaque cotton. Impressive lacy gauzy lusciousness! Love it!

    Lyric taught me screen printing online but made it seem as if she was right in the room with me. She's a born teacher–clear, organized and attentive to every student's needs.

    I loved both classes I took from Lyric through Quilt University(online). Lots of information provided, lots of encouragement, lots of technique choices and lots of fun. Couldn't ask for anymore more.

    I LOVE taking classes given by Lyric. She helped me step out of my comfort zone. Once I did, I found that I can be creative! I really had a great time! Thanks Lyric!!!
