Work from Jane's Class

Last month Nancy and I went to Pro Chem in Mass. for a class with Jane Dunnewold...and once again had a fabulous time and made alot of wonderful fabric.

The piece above is done on silk broadcloth. We were learning about resists using countless tools. I love this piece...and wonder if I will ever be able to cut into it.....may have to use it whole :)

These are three silk scarves....the resists were wax and blue school glue.

We worked on big tables and I put down a piece of cotton as a dropcloth and ended up surface designing a dozen pieces like this. They are some of my favorite work from the week.

Then I got an idea to layer a piece of silk organza over a piece of cotton as a dropcloth. As I went about doing my resists, the dyes would go through the organza and make a duplicate image on the's quite cool and I'm very happy with the results.
