Last week I attended the Rochester Area Fiber Art meeting. As usual, there were lots of beautiful pieces to inspire.
Anne had a gorgeous felted jacket:
She also had a large piece of yardage she had felted with beautiful silk inserts. It takes a long time to create felted yardage, and hers is warm yet not bulky. It drapes beautifully.
Caris modeled one of her jackets for us:
Beth took a class on dyeing with plants:
This was made with a variety of plants and I think one of them was sumac. I carefully wrote all the plants down, and have no clue where I put the paper with all the details. In the future, I’m bringing a notebook with me to the meetings so I don’t lose the information.
Kathi showed us this small piece:
She had more to show, but the photos came out lousy. It’s too bad because one was a piece that she stamped the words to a poem on the fabric – letter by letter. It took her hours and result was well worth the effort.
Tomorrow is my Ogden Art Group meeting, and we’re going to be painting on copper. I love copper, and am really looking forward to learning this technique.
