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

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.
