Our last day of class was Friday.
We learned so much more on the last day.
We learned why we did the "class quilt" and each got pieces of it to remember the learning experiences.
We also cut up and distributed pieces of each of the colors we dyed for the Sky Family.
Carol showed us examples of various experiments she had done to discover the effects of different variables in dyeing. This was so interesting. She also gave us hand outs so we could do some experiments on our own.
The last thing we did is share our work with the rest of the class and talk about how we got some of the results we achieved and how we felt about the different pieces.
This photo shows some of the pieces I created in the class. I was quite happy with most of them. I also learned what I should now do to add a little color to some of them without obliterating what is already there.
Carol spent a lot of time explaining overdyeing and the effect you get depending on the color and the value you choose. This was so interesting. I am glad I did not choose to overdye any of my work before she covered this.
A few of us had a lovely dinner at an Italian restaurant and then said our good byes. Since we live in various parts of the world we do not know when and if we will see each other again but we keep in touch via the internet.
This photo is of the group of us who originally met at Carol's Dyeing Part 1 class at the Timber Frame Barn in 2007. Since we were dyeing Color Families we called this our Family Reunion.
