Play Day #1

Had a wonderful workshop today with Rayna Gillman. Rayna is a very warm and funny fiber artist from New Jersey. Her teaching style if very relaxed. She really doesn't have any rules and stresses the need to experiment. My kind of lady.

We painted fabric using items like bubble wrap and construction fence and learned how to use a silk screen. The bottom piece of fabric was made using tissue paper that bleeds. The fun continues tomorrow in a design class where we use our painted fabric.
