It was snowing while transit in Minneapolis for my workshop taking place in Ohio.
Arrived artist Pamela A McGregor's studio, the next day I started making a teapot. Pamela's technique of wool felting is unique and inspiring.
After touch up of the stopper. All completed and in the drying.
In the meantime we shared the wonder of natural printing.
With some windfalls of oak, maple, rose, euc.... Natural prints on a silk blouse is done.
We also played with the same leaves on a silk scarf
Shades of green with iron mordant.
A teapot is made in the well organized studio.
The studio with everything in the finger tip
I stayed a few days in the cozy studio. In the sleepless night I read lots of reference books.
The house with lovely cats, one on my lap !
Huge but baby liked poodles
A pig and a horse are the members of the family
After workshop, Pamela and I strolled along the river
Quite winter feel
After teapot making, Pamela was so nice to drive me up to Michigan to meet artists Dawn Edwards and Sue.
Fun to play and interact in my last 24 hours in Michigan.
Also with same sorts of leaves but a little more reddish euc leaves
Dawn makes beautiful hats. She gave me this white one. I wrapped with leaves to boil.
Finished with quite nice prints and color tone.
Next morning breakfast meeting with Suzanne before heading to airport back to Vancouver. Such a nice catch up.
All made in the US. Thanks for Dawn's hospitality.
Thanks for Pamela's teaching and hosting. I made the unique teapot and enjoyed very much her company for the past few days. Now back to Vancouver for last glimpse of the city. Quite chilly these days.
