This is on the appalachian trail up by iron mountain. It is a cow drinking thing I think like a cistern.

I am very fond of boro. The month my father died, I was studying with Yoshiko Wada, in a workshop with an intense focus on boro textiles, history, philosophy and technique. Slowly, this sensibility is beginning to creep back into my work; and oddly enough, conceptually, seeds of ideas, past fits and starts, and half made projects along with others that are in need of mending all begin to come into play. The concept of value and sustainability together and the inherent beauty of each stitch.
We will look at resist techniques on protein fibers and learn to use acid dyes. Whether you are a weaver, felter, spinner, or dyer, you will get something great from this workshop! If you are a beginner, you will come away knowing how to use the dyes, if you are advanced, we will do in depth work. Something for everyone.

We will see how it goes. I am preparing to begin my new body of work for 2014
This is the kind of thing I am thinking of now. I dont know where it will go. Often the imagery is in a nebulous place first. I want to focus on grasses and maybe the minimalist quality, contrast of land and sky, but yet the evidence of the life of the grass through the snow is where it begins.
