When I realise how great my job is. I get the opportunity to work with beautiful fabrics, hang out with like-minded people, and create in a rather fabulous space.
This week I’m building a Fortune Teller’s costume for our Midway out of fabrics purchased from three different local stores including rayon (“man made silk” was very popular in the 1920s), silk and cotton.
Tomorrow I’m doing a textile demo with friends. There will be fibre prepping, spinning and weaving, including getting people to weave Travis’s way. I like the idea of kids (and perhaps adults) sitting on the floor or ground with yarn strapped from their waists to their toes (scroll down for visual reference) making fabric.
