RAFA’s monthly meeting was last week and Show and Tell was wonderful, plus the afternoon monoprinting workshop taught by Beth Brandekamp was a lot of fun.
Caren is teaching a class on threadpainting and brought her class sample to show:
Caren does beautiful thread painting and currently has a piece in the juried show in Cazenovia I mentioned in a previous post.
Donna had a lot of pieces to share with us, but I particularly loved this jacket:
Liz had a lot of jackets. Some were from her dyed fabric and some were from old tablecloths. I really like the appeal of the old tablecloth inspired jackets, and here is a picture of one of them:
Elaine is making a fabric book and brought a page. This is the front:
She took a photo, manipulated it in a paint program, printed out a few versions on fabric, then selected one she liked and created a pieced rendition. I absolutely loved that page.
Sharon made a graduation quilt for a family member:
Julia had some fabric that was treated to develop a print when exposed to sunlight. She was a little leery about it printing as it was a year old, but her prints came out great. This was my favorite:
Glynis also made lots of striped monoprints and this one reminded me of a field of grapes:
I think a glass of wine should be in the photo too. LOL
And Val made some wonderful monoprints too. She was smart to bring some predyed fabric and created this lovely print:
Personally, I think all it needs is to be quilted. The design is perfect just the way it is.
And last but not least is a piece of felted lace:
I’m really sorry, but my memory is taking a break, and I can’t remember the name of the talented artist who created this. I’ll ask and post it as soon as I find out.
I hope you enjoy seeing these photos of some of the projects from our last meeting.
