wayward blooms class at Art Unraveled

I started a travelogue of sorts when I ventured out on the road from my mountain top home to Phoenix to teach at Art Unraveled and to vend. I want to edit my writings before I post it here and I need to find time to download all my photos to post along with. For now I will show samples of the flowers created in the "wayward blooms" class Jennifer Whitmer and I co-taught. I think everyone was pleased at their beautiful creations!

I'm sorry I don't have names to go with particular flowers. Well to be honest I know very few names of the students who were in the class. But I do remember faces!! If you are reading this and one of these flowers is yours let me know.

Every time I teach new people to dye cloth I am amazed at the enthusiasm! Really once the magic of coloring silks captures you, you just want to do more and more, try different techniques and colors to see what the end result it. I wonder if I should put disclaimers on my handouts "Dyeing can be addictive"?

I was thrilled at the beauty of these and hope to be able to teach this class again in the future.

Lorri, having previously taken one of your dying classes, I know how you share your love of color and the process.
