Notes from camp…

Silk!

BL Fri 1

I am totally enamored with silk scarf painting. Seeing so many designs created from drawing to resist to painting…beautiful!

We are getting close on finishing up our small wall art pieces also. The students are working very hard in our class, plus they have responsibilities in two other classes. It all happens in 10 days and they need to be very proud of themselves.

BL Fri 7

Some of our fiber students came in without even knowing which end of the needle to thread! Many had never cut a piece of fabric, turned on an iron and most had never operated a sewing machine. Now those of you who sew—you know how much skill is involved in creating a fabric piece.

BL Fri 6

These children had to design a piece, learn how to sew a seam, use 3 embroidery stitches and/or other embellishments and finish the edges in order to have a presentation piece for the show. I am so impressed with what they have done.

    • I credit all scarf success to my co-teacher! She knew what she was doing with them and I absolutely did not! I love how they turned out!

    • Yes, those scarves were done by kids ages 14-17. Created a design and then executed it with resist and dye. Aren’t they awesome?
