Qsds weekend Slideshow

    Very beautiful work, but I am troubled by one thing: most of them look like your work. What was the goal of the workshop? Personally, I love your work, but would not want my work to look a lot like your work,because then it wouldn't be my work. How do your students find their own voice in your classes?

  2. Very Good observation! In a weekend class situation with limited timeframe I prepare a kit for the students use, from my hand dyed fabrics. That way they have a multitude of choices in which to learn the technique.

    After the class they are free to experiment with fabrics from their collection, and can then express themselves as they wish.

    My aim is to provide a safe and expedient method to get to the 'play area' of their brains. With the kit fused up rather than their own precious fabric (which are somehow more difficult to cut up!)they can jump right into the game and see what happens.

    Gotcha, thanks for the elucidation. BTW I recently finished a huge quilt in which I used the escape hatch finish. It worked great except for a little bubbling on the back which meant I had to control the extra fullness by pinbasting. Thanks for the great posts everyday!!
