Fun Workshops - Day 1

 

Friday and Saturday I had the privilege of spending the days in workshops with Margaret Hunt from South Carolina.  She is a renowned fiber artist and has won many ribbons and accolades.

The class on Friday was about using Portfolio Oil Pastels to color on fabrics.  These are water soluble so you can draw on the fabric and then brush with water to blend the colors.  Here are some photos from the day……

This is how the fabric looked before the water was added……

Marilyn did this wonderful bunch of flowers…..I would love to take these to a sewing machine and add a lot of machine embellishment to them…..

Margaret was fun to watch because she worked quickly and didn’t worry about making a mess.  Her painting method was fun and free…..

Here are a few more of her pieces……._4305067

Looks like you had a good time. The way the water transforms the images is amazing.
