Textiles

Margot Eiseman creates gorgeous painted silk scarves suitable for framing. She demonstrates the technique of applying a kelp-based resist and then uses dyes to fill in the colors she needs to create a beautiful still life.

After a brief explanation of art quilts, Clare Murray constructs a memory box that represents four generations of her family. She uses a wooden box with Plexiglas windows and places layers of broken crockery from her great grandmother, quilting materials from her grandmother, buttons from her mother and some of her own quilt batting to visualize her family history. The box is topped off with a piece of her own quilting.
