When I was young I wanted to be a designer. What I was going to design changed from time to time but the desire was always there. I remember in high school reading an article about Vera Neumann and her painted scarves. The idea that you could have a business painting on fabric was fascinating to me at the time. This of course was after periods of being equally fascinated by designing clothes, jewelry, and rooms. I have again become interested in the idea of painting on fabric. Right now I am really inspired by Lotta Jansdotter and Lena Corwin. I bought Lotta's stencils several months ago and finally took time to play with them. Super fun and easy! A canvas bag from Michaels, fabric paint, and about 1/2 hour later you have a cute bag. Next up is trying my hand at carving my own lino blocks and stamps. I have a stack of napkins and tea towels ready to go!
I am off to Berkeley tomorrow for a play day and then a 2 day workshop with the amazing Flora Bowley at the Teahouse Studio. Looking forward to an awesome weekend!
Wishing you an awesome weekend!
