A.I.R. 2008

Here is my "studio" for the rest of the week. I am in with Amber and it has been great!
Amber is working on several different things. She has been working on stiffened fabric which she then puts through her old typewriter and after embellishing the fabric with type creates books and art works. She also silkscreens photos onto clothes and tie-dyes baby clothes.

Yesterday I talked to a bunch of people, made a warp, started a second warp, priced all of my hand-spun yarns, wove a bit, spun a bit, dyed some fleece and a piece of silk that Amber wants to make into a hat.

Today I am expecting it to be a little less busy as far as visitors go because it is raining. Finally raining. It has been about 3 weeks since we have had any significant amount of rain fall and things were getting dry. The garden will be happy.

This sounds like a really interesting program Jackie - how did you get involved with it?

Oh, wow! I love the curved doors! What a gorgeous gallery! And I think Amber's stiffened fabric project sounds amazing! I hope you can get a few pictures -- it sounds so intriguing.

And hey - where are pictures of YOUR stuff!?

Now there is a good use for old typewriters. That is so cool.

I love those little arch shape rooms that you are working in. Good luck with your week of residency Jackie.

that looks like so much fun. I love when you post these artist in residence weeks. Maybe one day I'll be on vacation in your area during that week....wouldn't that be cool!

I'm glad you're having some productive fun! Do you stay there, or come in only for the days?

Died alpaca! Is baby Felicity involved? I am glad that she survived the moth attack (by the way, how is that going???). I know that you have a lot of fleece and roving to go through, but please let me know when Felicity and Desdamona are transformed. I would love to send photos to the alpacaspinner.
