-Painting with thickened Dye-learn to paint on silk and wool. Make your own fabric!
-Silk-screening with dye or pigment—Create your own image and print it on a top or pillow.
-Create a re-do—Bucket dye a top to embellish with fabric, stitching and silk screen.
-Explore using Solvy—A dissolvable interfacing, for collage with thread and fabric scraps.
-Floorcloths—Make a canvas rug!
Or customize your own weekend retreat!
I am delving into my boxes of Indigos to create the Indigos of the World Collection. I started with a sleeveless jumper with hidden pockets. This same silhouette can also sport sleeves and a drapey collar in the front. I’m excited because the simple shape is conducive to the collaging of the varied fabrics. Nothing excites me more than the blues of ethnic dye pots!
Oh, those beautiful Re-dos! Taking them apart, screening them and re-combining them. Never know what you’re going to get. Keeps it fresh!
