Chapter closed

Thank you to the wonderful ladies you made my chapter beautiful, you made my journey wonderful! You made my world colourful!
加拿大卑詩省的教學完滿結束,繽紛的衣料部分製作成衣飾,而我的美術小本也記載著連日學習及葉子樣品 - 一份紀念品。感謝主人家Norma 、Genoa及學生們使我有一個非凡教學旅程。
With Norma Janes and Genoa Daniel 's fantastic co-ordination and hospitality, my teaching in BC Vancouver, Comox Valley was marvellous. 

Students made fabulous eco-prints and nuno felted wearables. 

Eco prints from onion skins to flowers, from colour to shades....tricks and skills formed the fabric art and some even made into wearables .
My assignment closed with the good memories of the leaves prints. 
All these leaves yell colours or shapes
This handmade journal from Margo Duke marked my journey- bounty from nature Sept 2017.

Vivid Colours

Just in the past 24 hours those colours around me were amazingly beautiful.
Woke up with the stunning sunrise from host's grand house. Then forwarded to Mt Washington, Paradise Meadow for a trail walk in the woods.
昨天在好客主人Genoa 的山谷大宅晨光景「色」開始,我們與小狗走上青葱的山林。今日清晨已乘小型飛機回到溫哥華,趁著會議空檔在街上閒逛,這兒有些樹葉已轉色了,有翠綠、金黃、橙紅.......好一個宜居城市。
In early fall still warm and sunny but in the further mountains the year round with snow.
It's fresh walking in a sunny day

The evergreens are ever never boring.
The red, the yellow and the wood ....
Looks like alpaca I just visited in Amy's Ontario farm. 
The white queen ann lace are still blooming in the cool mountain.
Host Genoa and I have a break by the lake.
While we've a break the bird has to "pick" from Genoa's hand. 
That's yesterday Genoa and I walked with her dog Shanti in the BC Vancouver Island. Early this morning at 4am Genoa dropped me off to take the small flight from Comox to Vancouver. Have to say goodbye to my sweet host. My next stop is not my final destination or full stop. 
Arriving early in the B&B "White House I already explored the city on my own. Walking in the downtown and along the streets some trees are turning yellow to red, vivid colours. 

Vancouver is a liveble city with waterfront and greenery everywhere. 

Can you feel the joy?
Well, my "mission" in Canada has not yet completed. Tomorrow will have a social meet up with artists in Granville Island 
and explore the cultural and artistic ambiance.

Nuno felting

The second part of workshop is nuno felt making a piece of vest and a tunic with own designed layout of eco prints with the local plants.
Delicate placement 

Pieces of prints fresh from hot pot. Then going on ......

Cut off arm holes

After first focus on arm holes rounding and collar wool layout then the seams.
This is a reversible scarf-vest making. Another large project of a reversible tunic making layout is underway......

See student's work is aligning with the outside green. Such inspiring learning venue.
Layout final approved by doggie Shanti.
All done in two days the vest and tunic.......

Making of this kind of nuno felt wearables is technique of seamless and textures. Wish my students like what they've learned and done.
