I really wanted to post earlier, but I have been so busy over the last week that there hasn’t been a spare moment to write anything. Here is a brief overview. Weekend before last DIY Lounge was filmed by OPB’s Oregon Art Beat, which was so great. The executive producer, Jessica Martin interviewed Nicole Cipriano and I. They also filmed Nicole’s woodblock class. It was to great to even talk about with the same old words I always use. It was better than great, cool, rad, amazing and awesome put together. Here are a couple of images. The first is of Nicole and myself and a picture of the woodblock students getting their crafty groove on:
Here are some images of finished woodblock prints made by the students in this class:
The majority of the the students in this class said they weren’t artists and considered themselves beginners. Totally amazing – especially for novices, don’t you think?
So, after I was filmed by OPB, I was filmed again last Monday for an independent local show called Pirate Satelite TV.
I did a demo on t-shirt reconstruction, turning two old t-shirts into a cute, sexy tank top. As if that weren’t enough to write about I also went away last weekend to the Craft Congress! It was so wonderful. I met so many incredible people and I have so many new ideas. I will have pictures and stories to share, but I need to wait until I have a little more time to write about this.
