A fabulous weekend - good company, too much good food,
fantastic weather. Our tutor's luggage ended up in Nice,
only to be delivered two hours before the end of the workshop.
There was just enough time for Jette to show her latest
quilts, which then made sense of all the surface marking
techniques we had been messily making over two days.
Mark making with found objects
At last more than one colour - my silk screen
with remains of flour and water paste resist.
All together now; lost the white background; rubbings;
black screen print with 'voids'; flour and water paste
resist; cerise and yellow print.
Learnt lots. Dealt with the bringing wrong paints. Had only
textile screen paints black, cerise, a very pale turquoise
and yellow to work with. Since the first exercises were
restricted to one colour, it did concentrate the mind.
And then there was the gelatin plate printing. brilliant.
More on that in next post.
