Be brave and wade into hand- and screen-printing, resist, digital imaging and transfer processes using disperse dyes on synthetic fibers with Aussie Marie-Therese Wisniowski. Get pushed to your edge and grow both technically and conceptually in this 5 day post-conference workshop at Confluence in Minneapolis. Just a few spaces left.
Sample the latest delicacies from the world-wide-web-roaming Mickie. This trip she links us to San Jose for some really big quilts by A Bee; too close for comfort to Golden Orb spiders that spin gold; to the UK for access to great shows and videos; to Aussie fibre Down Under; then finally to a sweet site for needlearts. Cloth intarsia, anyone?
