Rockin’ the Acrylic Inks workshops: Round 2

IMG_1963

Saturday and Sunday, I taught the 2nd 2-day workshop with RMCQ. It was another great turn out, with students all the way from Laramie, Wyoming, Colorado Springs and the Western front range (meaning the other side of the Rocky mountains for those, like me, unfamiliar with the geography of the area).

After spending a week in Fort Collins, it’s clear to me that all the fresh air and breathtaking views of snow capped peaks, instills open minds for creativity.

I always enjoy watching as the sea of color grows.

One of the things I encourage my students to do, is use one of their pieces of fabric as a clean up rag throughout the class; to wipe up their work surface, any left over ink in the tray, spills, etc. This can often turn into a favorite sample from the class.  Now isn’t this a fabulous clean up rag?

On Monday night I gave my lecture at the meeting. This group did something I’ve never seen at a guild meeting before, that I think is really great. Their meeting room is large with carpeted walls and everyone hung all their show and tell around the room, and each person went up and talked about their work. Having it all on the wall allowed people time to look at the work up close all evening, instead of squinting from the audience.

Thank you, Rocky Mountain Creative Quilters!
