In a new year…

January 9, 2018

Last year…well, it was memorable in so many respects, it’s an understatement.  I’m simply grateful for the events, many forms of engagement, friends, family and the many others who in many ways kept me thinking, working and engaged with living. It was an overwhelming year in many respects, but I’m still grateful for the challenges.

There was some fun in it, and work. I’m looking forward to more of that “blue” engagement.

I don’t know quite what the year will bring, which is a good thing. I like a little mystery. I do know that I plan to be a student at some point instead of a teacher (more upcoming). I’m looking forward to learning some different perspectives on the topic.

For the moment, I’m offering an exploration in “nui” or stitched shibori at Sertoma Arts Center (Raleigh, NC) in March. There’s more detailed information on the Workshops page. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Wishing you serenity in this New Year.

stitch variations

October 30, 2014

Apart from getting together with friends in different contexts and meeting the “demands” of what I consider work, which I enjoy tremendously, my mind and body have been in a quiet (mostly mental) rebellion all week. Things did eventually settle and maybe garden work was the cure.

My class in stitched shibori is ongoing, and to prepare for it, I’m making a collection of small samples.

One day, they may become a book (textile/fiber type).

The class is going swimmingly as far as I can tell. There was much more activity in the vats, so more pieces on the line. I like their explorations, their thinking.

Last week’s “assignment” was variations in the straight stitch. There were, of course other experiments going on…to be expected and fun to see.

Celebrating the season: 秋・Aki (Autumn)

Aki-pstcrd1I’m sure I’ve mentioned this at least in passing several times in the recent past and “pointed” the way to my “Upcoming Workshops” page, but maybe it really needs to be posted.  At any rate, the classes begin next Tuesday evening.  If there are any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
