Surfaces

Holy...! School has kept me far more busy than I ever imagined possible. Among others, I am taking a drawing class and Intro to Fibers, two studio classes that together occupy the lion's share of my waking hours.


Right now we are concluding the surface design section of the semester in Fibers.  I get so excited about screenprinting fabric that I can't fall asleep; my mind is racing with new ideas!  It's kind of bad news.
Thus far, we've covered solid shade dyeing, low water immersion, itajime (that weekend's assignment of 4 yards took 22 hours to complete!), and different methods of surface design. I'll post photos of my better work soon!
