Last night at the Emerson, each artist was invited to talk about their work. It was interesting hearing about the various processes included in the show. This piece - of San Francisco is done primarily with paintsticks and fancy stitches on the Bernina.
Below, the artist used "thrumbs" - leftover snippets of wool to create the texture on this weaing.
Above, the artist used rust as well as acrylic paints to color the fabrics in the piece.
Below, the wool in the weaving was all hand dyed.
This artist, above used woven, painted Tyvek in her piece.
Below, the entire piece was felted as a solid unit - there is no needle felting at all. She said it was about 8" thick when she started.
