Home from SDA

I am home from the Surface Design Association conference at the Kansas City Art Institute. It was another great conference, and I came home revitalized and anxious to try out some new techniques. The photo above is of a wrought iron fence shadow across a sidewalk grate that I saw as I was walking on campus one day. I think it has some design possibilities.

This is a photo of Jiyoung Chung showing us the ancient art of Joomchi papermaking. I also attended demonstrations and lectures on breakdown screenprinting, using interfacing stencils in screenprinting, shibori dyeing, using unconventional materials in fiber artwork, encaustic fusion, and embellishing handmade paper --- plus all the gallery exhibitions, the vendor mall, the campus museums, and the trunk show. It was sensory overload, and needless to say I plan to attend the next conference in 2009!

My goodness! How can you keep everything straight will all those great classes. I would love to see some of your samples. What is encaustic fusion? Sounds interesting.
