This was a wonderful class One Theme, Many Possibilities by the talented and charming Kerr Grabowski. If you’ve been thinking about it, jump onboard the next class you can! It was an extraordinary adventure. My class was comprised of a room full of independents that just ran with every ball Kerr threw out to us. For instance, the top three pics are mine and the one on the right is made from sifting charcoal over a resist stencil onto a previously eco-printed piece. I never did that before and love the result! We all tried out new ways to make marks, altering and testing our methods as we went.
One person silk screened one piece, then attempted to reproduce it with fabric paint. None of us guessed right on which one was deconstructive screen printed. Another experiemented with how to get the best line print using glue gun stencils and mylar with very successful results!
I have to tell you that I’ve never seen such a welcoming group of women in one place before. There were no cliques to be seen and no one was excluded from anything. If you were sitting alone, it wouldn’t be long before someone would come by and make some friendly gesture. It wasa quite remarkeable!
Unfortunately my camera battery died twice at very inopportune times, so there were some great pics I missed, especially on our last night. I’m not easily amused but the last night’s events had me in stitches. so to speak! And my three suite-mates were the BEST! We really lucked out, I think. Anita, Susan and Andrea – all very special peeps! You helped to make my week one I’ll never forget! Thank you!
