If you were in Houston, you might have seen some of us today in the Make-It-University area doing the Sketchbook Challenge Round Robin workshop! We taught from 1:15 to 2:15 this afternoon in Make-It-University in the exhibitor's area of the International Quilt Festival. If you signed up to participate in the workshop, you were one busy person! We gave each participant a goodie bag filled with wonderful mixed-media items.
After this workshop, Jamie and I worked in Open Studios. I love having people stop by and visit. I demonstrated more gelatin plate monoprinting and had a lot of fun talking to all that stopped by.
Here are two shots of the fast-paced MIU event:
I wish I had been able to take more photos during this wild event! I know others did (hello Sue Bleiweiss) and when I am able, I will add more shots. Four instructors demoed a different technique. Students had about 12 minutes at each station. Crazy fun! We did gelatin plate monoprinting on 2 types of paper and 2 types of cloth. The students got some amazing prints using a variety of unconventional tools. You know me: what did you expect? Something "normal"?!
