This summer, I’ve been playing with printing on fabric and shibori folding. I pulled some pieces to do a piece to be submit to a show at the Cincinnati Women’s Club that the Weavers Guild is curating.
The dancers and the indigo moon piece suggested the title: Fly me to the Moon. The back is a set of two shibori pieces. All pieces are dyed with natural dyes: indigo, marigold, dandelion, honeysuckle and iron.
This is a bigger piece with more dancers as well as come of the mandelas that I’ve been doing. And, in case you missed it, there’s a coiled arrow to highlight the dancers!
And, the back. There’s some free-form pieces that didn’t have strong colors, but show the playfulness of the printing technique. The front is mostly indigo, marigold and iron. The back has some dandelion and coreopsis.
And, of course, Happy wanted to get into the picture!
