Another Textured Treasure Weekend

What is this you might ask - well it is a beautiful piece of hand stamped and painted fabric which is drying in the sun. The Sun Dye paints I use in these classes has brilliant colour and creates wonderful sun prints.
This weekend I taught a group in Sydney - Mosman Night Owls is a terrific group and are really getting into challenges so it was great to watch them really have fun with lots of different materials and techniques.
Some of the group hard at work

 I love this stamp with its curving motion
 Painted fusible web
 Stamped and overpainted fabric
 Some of Maggie's hand painted and stamped fabrics
Rubbing over a hand carved stamp with paint sticks create a lovely base and then can be overpainted with a painted wash

 We also have a beading session in this workshop and Anne-Marie has already started this gorgeous panel for a bag front. She was also kind enough to demonstrate some embroidery stitches for me.  Of course she had stamped and painted this fabric in the class too,

 This was my new stamp that I made from Wet and Grow and I think it is going to get a lot of use.
I had a great weekend and saw the start of some incredible projects including hand stamped and beaded lavender sachets, quilts, bags and original fabrics.
If you would like more information about this (or other) workshops contact me soon - 2012 is filling fast.

I love the idea of the Wet and Grow, I must get some. Do I have time to get some before you fly away? Also wish I was going with you.

Hi, Lisa. Just stopped by from Quilter Blogs to enjoy your textile work. Your quilts are amazing and I appreciated the fact that you include student work, which provides so much variety. Your enthusiasm for surface design (painting, printing, etc) is contagious.
