International Quilt Festival

class collective, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.

Today's class was creating texture with writing. Our teacher, Lisa Engelbrecht, is a fantastic calligrapher. Her artwork includes her calligraphy and embellishes her pieces beautifully. On canvas and muslin we created washes with ink; smeared and swished with more ink; did calligraphy with all colors of ink in all directions with so many tools; and added more ink after that. I can't wait to finish these pieces individually and with a collection of mixed media.
