I got an early start on Saturday’s fabric painting workshop at Hen & Chicks Studio — Heidi Kaisand invited me to spend Friday night beforehand at The Nest upstairs. The Nest is a dorm-like retreat center equipped for creative sleepovers, divided by colorful doors that I painted. I slept very well and wasn’t lonely, with my artwork surrounding me and a beautiful quilt to sleep under in the 120-year-old building (sorta like being in my 113-year-old bank again!).
At the workshop we practiced painting on fabric using watercolor-like techniques — my samples in the photo below show tape resist, glue resist, stenciling, rubbing, and wet-in-wet using latex house paint. Heidi has posted some great pictures from the event on her blog:
Many thanks to Heidi and everyone in class. We’re already talking about planning the next ones!
