NOFA – Week-end Retreat

Northern Ontario Fibre Artists recently had a week-end retreat at Jane's cottage. 

We experimented with several techniques, watched Quilting Arts DVDs, ate great food and had lots of laughs.

Here's a few results of our experiments from the week-end.

Adding colour to Lutradur and Plein Air Painting

More Lutradur.  Forgot the alcohol?  lectric Shave is little smelly but it works

The sun wasn't out for quite long enough for Sun Painting but it was fun trying. 

And here's a little 9" x 12" piece I finished at home adding wool and beads.
Techniques from Fusing Fabric by Margaret Beal.

We took advantage of a break in the weather to sit outside and fuse organza and felt using soldering irons.

It was a fun week-end.

Linking up to Nina Marie's Off the Wall Friday.
