Amy Grief can't resist using multi resist techniques!

Amy Grief has been a student of mine for several years, and she has developed a slow and steady approach to using resist by stitching, cassava paste or clay paste resist then dyeing cotton fabrics with indigo.  Here are a few of her creations from today's workshop

Triangle folding with several directions of stitch resist.

  1. My write up is on Sept. 2, 2015 post. Scroll down until you see the blog archives on the left for 2015. Click on the hear and the posts for that year will appear, click on "I can't resist this!" and read about the paste and get the recipe.

  2. How do I receive notice of your workshops? I live in Arizona but travel to Tampa occasionally and would like to work in a workshop.

  3. I hold a workshop the 3rd Sunday of Every month at the Pioneer Florida Museum in Dade City, FL. I post notices on the Museum FB Page and also only my blog. Christmas, Thanksgiving and Father's Day get a little tricky, so I generally go with what my students prefer for those holidays. You may contact me here on my blog or on my Facebook page under James Dennison.
