Well howdy everyone.
I’m just ending my first week here in the studio without Jane. It’s been weird and I miss her a lot. I was pretty nervous at first but am actually finding out that I know a lot more that I thought I did. Whew!
I’ve heard from her a couple times. As most of you know, she left for India on Sunday and is travelling with Charllotte Kwon and the Maiwa Foundation for the next 3 1/2 weeks . She won’t get into much detail this week because of the limited internet connection but did say that her first 24 hours in India have already completely blown her away. Her first stop is Bagru, Rajasthan in western India. A village famous for it’s intricately designed wooden block printing and natural dyes using indigo, pomegranate, madder root and turmeric. I can’t wait to hear about what she gets up to! I bet you can’t wait either!
We’re working on the warps for our next workshop coming up fast at the end of February: An Exploration of Colour and Design . There’s one spot available! If you were hoping to take this course, now’s your chance. The other Colour and Design workshop in April is already full. I’m having a blast working on these warps, the colours are all so happy! As I continue to learn about weaving I’m able to absorb more and more information from each workshop – I’m really excited for them to start up again!
So, we’ll do our best to keep you posted on the stories from Jane’s travels, and the goings on here in the studio. And if anyone has a burning desire to share their thoughts and feelings, fire away with your comments.
Until next time ….
