HiFiber Meeting for May
Since we were meeting in a gallery and we didn't have a wet place to work Bonnie came up with a method for us to take all the ingredients home to actually dye the fabric. During the mini workshop we tried many different ways to fold and manipulate the fabric for resist.
Beatriz left the thread in this piece so we could see how the thread worked as a resist.
Barbara chose to dye thread along with the fabric, a great idea.
These three were very interesting designs and I believe dyed by Donna.
I did this piece and the design was accomplished by using golf balls secured with wide rubber bands.
Heidi has specific plans for this piece.
These were some of the images done by Bonnie. There were many great designs that came out of this experiment. After everyone did show & tell, Bonnie challenged us to make an art piece using no other fabric than the four pieces we dyed. The piece can be embellished with any thing. This should be interesting.
I did the program for the May meeting, demonstrating different paints used on fabric. More on that later.
