Gelatin plate printing

Given some of you played with gelatin plates a few weekends ago (that was the plan, at least!), you might enjoy exploring Linda Germain’s blog – this is just one of the links you might find useful there.

textileartist.org

textile artist.org interviews Harry Schumacher who has some timely advice for textile artists.
 
What advice would you give to an aspiring textile artist?
 
“Keep the things you make close to yourself. Maybe you call it art. Maybe other people call it art. In the end that’s not important. If you really want to be autonomous it’s not about what other people expect you to make. Make free time to experiment – it won’t give you results in the short term, but it will provide continuous development in the long term. And it keeps things more interesting for yourself, instead of repetition. Good documentation of your experiments is very important. It’s the ultimate disappointment if you create something you can use, but can not repeat the process.”

Aprons revisited

What a wonderful idea! This is especially for those of us who enjoyed Jenny’s aprons she is making for the next Rosny stage production, an idea that should tickle your fancy! There is a photo of Jenny’s creations in the Meetings section under Events.
