CABIN FEVER RETREAT - September 12-14, 2018 
(something for everyone)


I have been so busy with my duties at the TETT Centre for Creativity and Learning the past couple of years that FIBREWORKS has taken a bit of a back seat. This fall lets get together and spend some great days creating together. 

Hoping YOU are looking forward to fall 2018 and some days that will bring you time for getting out your fabrics and paints and trying some new works experimenting with SILK PAINTING, using a very free form style of painting I learned from friend Betty Busby as she created her backgrounds for application of Non-Woven Fabric that is also coloured with fabric paints and then cut with a small "heat tool" (soldering-like craft tool that plus in and heats up for cutting fabrics), creating free form cut out openings and holes that can be the catalyst for overlays for exciting dimensional art!

Then a day of Indigo Play, as this is a passionate art form that everyone can participate in and bring the joy of BLUE into your artwork and quilts. The Indigo play can continue into Friday or until the vats are exhausted. Cotton, linen, silk and knits that are cotton based can all be used for this project.

Day three will find you all working on an art quilt that uses up your fabric scraps or your hand dyed fabrics like the ones I have used below in TURNING POINT - flat dyed right here at the Odessa Hall with friends.

I look forward to having YOU and do bring along a few creative and arts focused friends and lets fill the hall on three beautiful fall days with the excitement of Colour, Cloth, Paint and Stitch!
