Here is a selection of finished postcards that my students made in today's workshop.
Each student experimented with gelatin plate monoprinting on cloth and fabric,
made rubbings with Pentel Fabric Fun dye sticks, wrote on cloth and paper with markers,
and fused it all together onto a card which will be mailed from the show.
(the awesome-looking retro couple in many of the cards are my very own
parents, circa 1945).
Here I am, teaching a "mark-making" workshop at the Long Beach Quilt Festival
in the Make-It-University area of the Quilting Arts booth
Some of the interesting stuff on the students' work tables
The workshop participants are holding up their finished, hand-printed
postcards! They are simply amazing!
Today was my first experience of teaching a workshop in the Quilting Arts "Make-It-University" setting at the Long Beach Quilt Festival. It was a blast from start to finish. My students were a lot of fun to work with and I am hoping they will share some of their future endeavors with me. If any of you are reading this: you were awesome and I truly enjoyed meeting each of you! Please, please stay in touch and keep playing and having fun.
If you need the Imperfection Pledge I will be happy to read it to you again...
