Indigo Dye Day

 

Results of the Indigo Dye Day with Judy Gula of Artistic Artifacts. 

I am happy to have made the last of three indigo dye days Judy held this summer. The photos show the results I got using tea bag papers, which are ethereal yet sturdy enough to take the dye and go through the washing machine to rinse. The next dye day will be in 2018 when the weather warms up and I believe I will go again.  Can’t wait!  Thanks Judy.

Lover’s Eye Token Class September 30, 2017

By Sharon McDonagh – Example of student work

 

Mixed Media Eye Token Workshop with theresa mARTin
Saturday, September 30, 2017
10:00 am – 2:30 pm, ½ hour lunch break

All Supplies Provided! In the 18th and 19th century, Lover’s Eye Tokens were popular with the wealthy. A miniaturist painted just the eyes of a lover, preserving anonymity… thus the recipient alone knew the identity of the person depicted. The tokens were often elaborately decorated and worn as bracelets, brooches or pendants. Create your own version using a love token form, beads, pearls, rhinestones, and an eye portrait. Class fee, $45.00 + supply/kit fee of $25.00, which includes all necessary supplies; students will have a choice of materials and colors.

Note: Although supplies are provided, feel free to bring in assorted beads, charms and embellishments from your stash to supplement or to add an even more personal touch. View a variety of tokens made by theresa mARTin on her pinterest board

Student work from Illuminated Manuscript Letter Class


My students excel beyond anything I can teach them. I give them some pens and black paper and try to give a way to start out slowly. Then they jump into the deep end on their own with joy and create beautiful work.  It always astounds me.

I need to come up with a different name for the class in the future because it’s never strictly Illuminated Letters.  Any ideas for a new class name welcomed.

Showing here many process shots and having the hope that my students will send me photos when they finish at home.
