Week 1 of Art Quilt Campus a Great Success
It’s Saturday and I have a little time to reflect on last week’s activities. I woke up this morning recalling the amazing creative energy that filled the spaces our group inhabited. Thursday afternoon we opened our doors to anyone who was a little curious about what was taking shape after three full days of dyeing and sewing.
Leona (left) attended AQC 2014 and was checking out what Gillian had accomplished in the dye room this year.
Debbie (far left) admiring Alison’s indigo dyed pieces.
Several of the visitors are going to attend Week 2 of AQC and we’re happy to see what might be their “stash of hand- dyed fabrics” in only seven days….
Dorothy used her hand-dyed fabric and added some stenciling with Shiva oil sticks.
Marilyn discovered painting on fabric during her class with me at Quilt Canada this year. She was busy creating several birds for a nature inspired piece.
Minnie’s Milky Way over Grasslands National Park was taking shape by late Thursday afternoon.
Berna and Lynn in conversation over Lynn’s accomplishments in class this week.
One of the monastery’s brothers is a painter. He dropped by to see what had come out of the dye jars from earlier in the week.
Helene revealed her Shibori indigo piece as we were packing up on Friday.
A weary group just before we said good bye. Elinor and Lynn are absent due to an early morning departure. We spent the last evening socializing and deepening new friendships. I even have a request for three participants sharing a room in 2015!
Thank you to Wayne Dirkson for capturing this creative (and slightly tired) group! Thank you to all the participants for you support and dedication. Art Quilt Campus could not unfold without your enthusiasm and sense of adventure.
Bring on week two!
