This is what I'll be doing May 1st - five months after that ill-fated resolution. And along with a much anticipated long, long grocery list of my new life that has come from months of stressed thinking about the meaning of teaching and art in the life of yer's truly, I will write these dang posts whenever I want. (and first on that grocery list is that I had better begin to write more frequently!)
And at least I always have something new to write about - something that I'm excited about. This time I'd like to mention my four upcoming Scarf Making Workshops in 2013. I have been teaching felt scarf classes since time began and even managed to write a pretty nice book about it with master felted Jori Johnson a few years ago. But since my life for a few years has been involved with resist dyeing on the felt, I decided to make some changes in the scarf class to make it more interesting.
First is the use of resist blocks to provide exciting under color for the MOKUME scarf. More dyeing, more undercolor possibilities and a brand new way to create the shaped resist for the final dyepot - PINS! and I'll say no more as to not destroy your anticipation when you come to the class.
