Fall Retreat--Warp Painting
We knew that October could bring lots of variety of weather, and we've lucked up with a sunny (but cool) forecast.
Last night we thought we would pre-wash the warps, but we ended up sitting around the fire pit. Pat brought nibbles for us to enjoy as we discussed our new project. After soup & bread (and a really yummy salad that LaDonna and Ila brought) we watched Carol's DVD by Mollie Freeman and Sara Lamb: Warp Painting Plus. WOW! I'm finally seeing the possibilities of this!!!!
Carol has pre-mixed the dyes we'll be using today. So, in a few hours we'll be dabbing dye onto our warps.
Tina brought over her knitting machine to make blanks for those who want to try that method. I may do up some bamboo if we have time! That sounds like fun, too!!!
So, put on your apron and gloves, and get ready for a fun day! I'll add pictures tomorrow of our Retreat!
Happy Weaving & Dyeing!!!!
