Joanna White will be at our
June 16 meeting demonstrating
her silk painting techniques and showing examples of her work.
She will demonstrate quilting
with hand-dyed silk.
In her artist statement Joanna says, "Over the past 30 years, my love of color, texture and beauty has been expressed through various textile mediums: sewing, weaving, knitting, felting, quilting and fabric collage. It has only been in the last five years since I have retired that the love of all things fiber has fully been expressed through painting on silk. I have found my passion! Silk is a living, breathing fiber that reflects light and has an inner radiance that brings forth the beauty of the wearer. Painting on silk is like flying in beautiful skies . . . the dyes move and flow magically on stretched white silk. Sumi-e brushes, French dye, and resists of all kinds are the vehicles for creating one-of-a kind fabrics."
The June Quilt Guild meeting is Monday, June 16,
beginning with a social time at 6:30 PM with our meeting and program at 7:00 PM at the
at Senior Center 278 Meroney Street in Mocksville. Meetings are open to those interested in learning more about quilting.
