Here are the girls from the workshop showing off their beautiful tie transfer scarves. They really showed skill in making unique and beautiful scarves using the tie transfer technique.
This is Joan, the director of the RockyMount center for the Arts and her scarf.
Close ups of a few of the still wet but beautiful colors and designs.

I'm going to be teaching a workshop at The Grainery in Rocky Mount on Wednesday the 19th of October from 1-3 pm. You can register for the Tie Transfer Workshop
by clicking here
Tie transfer is an eco-friendly, re-purposing, technique of transferring the color as well as the design details of silk ties and scarves onto fabric or paper. It's a little like magic in that it's always a surprise when you open up your finished scarf (that's what we'll be making that day). The technique has been featured in the two publications listed below and I'll tell you the story of how I developed this technique the day of the class.

What a cute idea for wedding thank yous or save the dates.
Isn't this a great idea for a family photo.
Love, love, love this wall. If you're into letters, I'm selling the ones below on etsy. They are 10" high. I have others that are stainless steel and larger. Very midcentury.

Love the unexpected mobile above the table. It doesn't always have to be a chandelier does it?
I love shutters. Old or new. I love this concept, but I think I'd paint them all the same color. Great texture. By the way, they were installed on lathing applied to the wall behind them.
I just think this is a lovely room. The textures, simplicity, etc. are great.

Time to figure out the summer wardrobe. Isn't this paper dress cute. What a cute banner it could make with several dresses across is.
The painted details of these plates are lovely. I was once a china painter. These are soft, colorful and lovely.
I love the way the colorful art brings life to this very neutral room.

Wish I had a potting table and back terrace like this one. Lovely, Mediterranean, Rustic and just great!
Love the silhouette dogs and the way they are framed, not centered. Also like the exposed lamp wire frames.

I love the color mixes and the many fabrics on this bench.
On something bigger it might be too much, but here it is just right.
This is a very calming room, and if you're going to do a calm room, the bedroom is the place to do that.
