Teaching fibers at the Art Museum

(Click on either image to enlarge.)

I finally remembered to take my camera out of my purse and snap a few pictures while teaching at the Columbia Museum of Art. It's a great group of ladies. Last week we experimented with heat-activated techniques using previously painted WonderUnder (Bond-a-Web), metallic foils, polyester velvets, soldering irons, and snippets of just about everything imaginable. This week we continued "playing" with textiles and I gave both hand and free motion embroidery demonstrations. Next week is the final session about proper mounting and display of contemporary textiles.

I didn't know you were still teaching! That's great. And it sounds like it's alot more fun and rewarding for you than the childrens' classes. Although I still smile when I think of those days when you were doing basic sewing for kids...teaching them how to thread a needle etc. And how you learned that even the adults were struggling with it. And, by the way...Happy Labor Day! I completely forgot out the holiday until this morning.

Looks like you have had great fun! Too bad I didn't live in the area. Thanks for visiting my blog too. I see another Wanda posting before me. Not often you run across that name. Wanda
