Books or DVDs? Thinking ahead to Art Quilt Campus

videosI love to learn, and part of my ongoing educational journey is reading and watching educational programmes. Last month I had the TV tuned to one of the public education channels to watch a BBC produced documentary titled “Hidden Treasures” with Griff Rhys Jones. I had missed Part 1 the previous week where Griff explored Australia. My interested peaked as I watched Part 2 where he explored West Africa to find traditional art in remote places. Part 3 was my personal favorite with dyeing and printing techniques that have been preserved in India through the ages. A quick search on the internet to find out if I could purchase this DVD had us locate it quickly. It was shipped from Australia and arrived in our post office box last week.

I purchased the programme to share with Art Quilt Campus participants in September. In my limited DVD library I also located two very good videos that will be of interest to those exploring indigo. (And yes, there are still several openings in week two… check the info in the Tutorial and Resources section of this site.)

With the snow softly falling outside my windows today I can’t help to look ahead just a little bit. Art Quilt Campus will be on our doorstep soon enough. But until then I have a number of other teaching fulfill. Right now I am packing my quilts for exhibition in Virginia and New Jersey. I can’t believe how the time has flown by and I have to once again leave the studio behind…
