It has been a pretty fabulous week for me, art wise. I got accepted into the Museum Guide program at the Nelson! Woot. I am so very honored and excited. The classes start next week, and by the end of the summer I will be all trained up. I will keep you posted of when I will be museum guiding and plead for you to come see me!
I also have been taking a fiber arts class at Kansas City Art Institute through their continuing education program. So great. It is super messy and super lots of things to mix. We have been dying cloth. Dying whole cloth in the first class; shibori (fancy word for tie-dye) and fabric painting in the second. I am not sure it is completely my jam, but it has been fun to learn the techniques.
Below are pictures of the whole cloths we died, some of the shibori, and the adorable teacher showing us “pole wrapping”, which looks and sounds dirty but really is just wrapping cloth and string around a pole so that when you die the cloth you get a wood-grain effect.
