|Polly, me, Donna, Paula, Rose, Brenda, Justine, Nancy and Ginny!|
|The ice dyeing technique was high on the list for the group so we got started right away on this method!|
|Ginny and Nancy are deciding which colors to use!|
|Nancy and Brenda are going for it!|
|No two fabrics will be exactly the same!|
|Ginny is combining fucschia and yellow!|
|Polly and Ginny compare notes!|
|Each person dyed 3 half yard Ice Dyed pieces. They are all lined up and ready for the sun and ice to make some magic! I can't wait to see how they turned out.|
|Next we worked on the Confetti Dyeing technique!|
|We pulled out the color wheel to get some inspiration on contrasting colors!|
|My sister Donna volunteered to be my lovely assistant (red apron).|
Her energy and spirit contributed to a great day!
|Paula and Nancy are creating some fun texture in their design by working on the uneven grassy surface!|
|Brenda is sharing her design thoughts with Justine! |
This is a warm and collaborative group.
|Donna is trying her hand at pleating fabric and spraying the folds to get a nice linear result!|
|Polly is spraying her fabric to encourage the dye to meander down the fabric surface!|
|Justine combined some really bold colors!|
|Aren't they beautiful! Each person took home 4 half yards of yummy Confetti Dyed fabric!|
|The last technique we worked on was using thickened dyes! |
I'm demonstrating screen printing foliage onto the fabric surface.
|Rose and I working out some design details!|
|Justine is going for it!|
|Look at Paula's beautiful oak leaves!|
|Nancy is happy with her pieces!|
|Donna is taking home some gorgeous fabric!|
|This is Rose's workshop "haul"... sooo many new fabrics to play with!|
|A few of Polly's pieces!|
|Paula went right home and washed, dried and pressed her new fabrics!|
|More of Paula's workshop goodies = wow!|
