I had a teacher in high school that I loved because she would let me perch on my desk or the counter by the window. I found out years later that she was always telling me to get down. I never heard her. Not once. I must have been seriously off in La La Land.
Last week I had the great good fortune to meet a fabulous group called Fiber Frenzy in Athens, GA. The Lyndon House Arts Center is a beautiful venue with galleries and classrooms. We had two days of serious fun – a stretched out Surface Design Sampler Platter.
Usually I teach it in one day and it can feel like drinking from a fire hose because we do SO MANY THINGS all in one day.
In a two day class we had time to play a little longer. Here we’re trying out some instantly gratifying citrasolv photo transfer – (tutorial here)
We played with foil – letting the magpie shiny sparkly things lovers come out in us all!
We were having fun – honest. Ignore all the wrinkled brows of serious concentration.
We carved stamps and screen printed – and LOVED every minute of it!
Did I mention how great the facility was? Room for everyone to PLAY!
I still love to perch.
You can find all of these techniques – and a few more on my Quilting Arts DVD Workshop called Surface Design Sampler Platter. You can purchase it from the link up there on the right side of this blog. 😉
