Art Quilt Campus 2018: Day 1

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As our first day came a close we gathered in the studio for the annual Show & Tell session. This year I welcomed participants from previous Week 1 and 2 sessions and we are experiencing new creative dynamics. New friendships are forging and longtime friends are reuniting. Never before has a group gelled to quickly and turned their energy and attention to their personal goals!

The dye room was fully utilized with happy dyers turning their attention to various projects. We have dye painting, parfait dyeing, low immersion dyeing, mono printing with thicked dyes, acrylic fabric paints and wet felting sharing the room quietly. When I made my rounds today I always felt I was entering a sacred space filled with quiet contentment and complete concentration as the dyes were mixed and applied.

The sewing studio was much the same! During Show & Tell tonight we enjoyed seeing work finished that was started last year, we heard about travels and textiles, personal successes like securing and mounting exhibitions, and personal stories where quilting and textile art have played pivotal roles in overcoming life’s obstacles.

I can’t wait for tomorrow when dreams lead to new explorations and experimentation.

    • I am just getting to replying to comments, Leona. We have been fully immersed in so many activities. With so much going on again this year we have not planned a time for visitors. Wish I had known earlier that there was interest and we could have communicated to set up a mutually agreeable time.
