On Thursday 8 January the Dyeing to Paint group met for the first time after enjoyng the Christmas and New Year break. We got off to a slow start – perhaps due to too much partying? But, it was good to catch up and chat about children, grandchildren and weddings.
Once we got going there was great enthusiasm to use coloured tissue paper to see what wonderful effects could be achieved – many thanks to Ann for supplying the tissue.
We also had a go at using to soya wax….
And, whilst all this was going on Fiona was quietly beavering away in the background unpicking a cushion cover!
At the last Dyeing to Paint meeting before Christmas Hilary screen printed bikes onto fabric and then used them to make cushions which look wonderful. I bet the people who received them in their Christmas stockings were delighted.
