Another great workshop at the Museum!

Sunday's workshop at the Pioneer Florida Museum was just great.  Perfect weather, some very creative students and a good strong indigo vat made for some love project results.  It is really something when everything comes together.  Thank you all.

More fabric for Amy's skirt!

Amy now has quite a collection of clay resist prints for her skirt!

These hickory nut slices are more than they are cracked up to be!

Marilyn Hines did a great job using hickory nut shell slices to print this clay resist paste design on a cotton shirt!  Quite stunning person!

Indigo and ecoprints on paper......nice!

The lovely leaf prints on paper were truly enhanced by a final dip of the bundle into the indigo vat.  Really lovely, Maggie!

A little blue never hurt...!

Maggie Clark did a great job eco printing this silk scarf, but she thought a little indigo would help.  She edge dyed the bundle before opening.  Nice results!

Something to Crow about!

Maggie created a great looking Tee Shirt with her crow patterns  She has inspired me to do my own bird prints on Tees!

Trip Memories on paper!

Marilyn recently took a trip to Tennessee with her daughter, and while there collected various leaves to bring home and print on paper.  The fall colors had indicated that the anthrocyanins were high, and as you can see, the leaves printed very well on paper.

When leaves become the resist!

Marilyn Hines discovered a couple of Air Potato Vine leaves that had been attacked by insects.  The lacy design created caught her eye and she decided to try using them as a resist stencil with clay paste to create a lovely blouse design.

Back in the saddle again!

Hope Martin hsn't been a ble to be with us for a while, but her lovely Shibori on cotton shows she hasn't lost her touch!

When you have got the blues.......!

These clay resist prints will look great in a skirt!
The clay resist designs look great on white on white print cotton

Amy Grief is creating her own indigo prints to make her skirt

Amy Grief enjoyed Marilyn's skirts so much that she decided to  print her own fabrics to make a skirt
