I have just enjoyed another DOL in Ashland, so I am sharing some of the highlights. Diane was inspiring as usual and it’s always exciting to see her new work. I always come away with new ideas to try, and get excited about. Kayla Kennington was her guest teacher and she brought along an amazingly collection of her garments for us to enjoy and gave up lots of information on design, style and garment construction. We all came away with juicy fabric treasures from her stash.
Mollie made a great jacket using one of Diane’s printed panels. John, our favorite male and his wife Marta make beautiful garments from fabric they have dyed and no one can make a shirt like John.
Our next DOL is in Taos at the end of June. It’s one of my favorite places in the world. I am so excited to meet Diane’s guest Teacher Bettina Mutzuhn, who is from Canada. I love to meet passionate artists who develop their own special techniques and share them with us.
If you have not been to a DOL in a while, this might be the time to experience this amazing place. It’s beautiful there in June and we have the lodge mostly to ourselves. There are some spots still available.
Here are a few memories from previous Toas retreats.
