My first non-traditional piece!
This was my first non-traditional piece.
I took a class with Erica Carter at Irsee (Germany) I think it was 1997...
She teached us how to use our imagination to create, using music, doing doodles, etc.
At the end i had this piece almost finished to take home with. I worked till late at night to finish it... I was so happy of finding all these small figures who never left me since.
The fabric were from Heide Stoll Weber because I din't have a clue about dyeing at that time!
After this workshop I travelled to the States and took classes at the QSDS, at Arrowmont, at Susan Shie and James Acord's Turtle Camp, at Haystack, I began twice a City and Guilds embroidery class
which i never finished because i was already teaching on my own... (i was always sorry about not finishing them!!!)
Now i told you some details about my development in textile art. I also had an art instruction before marrying but not in textiles. This developed after my children grew up!...
If you want to see more details of this quilt, please look into my flickr site!
