Yesterday Sharyn Hall was the guest speaker at my Guild's meeting. Sharyn had travelled from Queensland to share her works with us and to provide a two-day workshop to members. It was a most inspiring day, as Sharyn shared samples of patterns made by applying colour to natural fabrics. She uses thickened fibre reactive dyes and different textile paints in a variety of printing methods. Sadly, I couldn't attend her workshop, but here is a description of it to give you an idea of the type of techniques that were covered. To see one of Sharyn's quilts, click here. I definitely have to play with some of these ideas.
