Shibori Silk Scarves

Today I taught a three hour class at  Art Access  in downtown Salt Lake City.   The classroom can be accessed through this beautiful walkway. I think I would love to live here.   All set up and ready for the students to arrive! All 13 students went home with a beautiful Shibori Silk scarf ready to wear.  I love making these scarves!

Utah Quilt Fest 2016

Last week I had the privilege of teaching two classes at the Utah Quilt Guild's Quilt Fest .  I taught a half day class on carving rubber stamps for fabric design, and a full day Dye Party.   Getting ready to teach is exhilarating and exhausting.  Lots, and lots of supplies to buy, put together and pack.  Lots of dyes to mix (my glove had a couple holes in it!). Thinking through each situation to make sure I have everything and then getting it all in to the back of my van.  And then remembering to pack my own clothing, toiletries, medications, and any personal projects to work on after I teach.  Exhausting!!! BUT the classes are exhilarating! I had so many great students, and the students are really what make the teaching worth while!  These are some of the students from the rubber stamping class. Our classroom for the Dye Party was in this beautiful atrium because we were next to a door with a hose and places to dump the rinse water.
