Reflections Exhibit

A quick sneak peak at my one woman show in conjunction with the Tampa Bay Surface Design Guild Wearable Arts Show, which opens tonight and goes until Jan 10, 2019 at the Unitarian Universalist church in Clearwater,  Fl.

Some of my art cloth waiting to be hung.

Over-dyeing Workshop

Several weeks I lead a workshop for the Tampa Bay Surface Design Guild on over-dyeing fabric.  Students bought in fabrics they had previously dyed and learned how to over-dye them.  We discussed color options and manipulations options.  I had premixed all of the single color dyes for them to use.  Here are a few pieces they created.

The last three pieces by Bonnie shows the original piece before over-dyeing (the small swatch) and an almost solid piece of the color and the larger over-dyed piece.  In addition to over-dyeing several pieces, Bonnie took the time to dye samples of all the single color dyes.  Now she has a great idea on how the colors interact with other colors and a great start on creating a dye notebook.
