So obviously I have been ignoring this here blog. Soooo Sorry!
Here is what has been taking precedence:
I have been teaching a design, sew and embellish class for middle school students. We have been doing lots of sewinging. I will also be having a workshop for “Nick Cave inspired” art in conjunction with an exhibit of his work at the SAM called “Meet Me at the Center of the Earth”. I am really excited about this and have become quite a fan of Nick Caves work and those of you who know me can probably see why:
I will keep you posted on how our own Soundsuit inspired art goes. One of these days I will actually take pictures of my class and how much fun we have for you as well!!
I have also been sewing:
I made this dress by quilting recycled leather, recycled wool and silk for the bodice with silk organza skirt. There is a fully boned corset inside and a heavy exposed zipper down the back.
I am also costuming a play for Theater Schmeater here in Seattle. It is The Twilight Zone 2011. I am really getting my Mad Men fix off of this one. It opens on March 18th and it is sure to be a fun time!! We are doing three episodes:
The Monsters are Due on Maple Street
And it is going to be done pretty much to that late ’50s early ’60 feel even for Obsolete Man which is set in the future.
