Know what this is? Had I not gotten sucked into the @witanddelight_ punch needling story, I wouldn't have known either. I went down the rabbit hole trying to figure it out on my own before finally Googling "Minneapolis punch needling" and finding a class at the Textile Center. Here's what I learned tonight in class #1:
1. This is no stress or creative anxiety
2. There is no counting involved
3. There is not a lot of thinking needed
4. The repetition is actually quite calming
4. And you don't have to try too hard to let off steam as you stab that sharp needle through the cloth (or whatever you imagine stabbing). #punchneedle #punchneedling #textilecentermn

Weather prediction: cold and cloudy this Sunday. So brighten it up with Stitched Shibori, taught by @sandraa.brick. I love portable projects, and stitching your shibori patterns (before you dye, of course) is something you can do on the bus, watching a political debate, at your grandkid’s recital.... Just look at these samples! The technique is gorgeous. https://textilecentermn.org/product/stitched-shibori-%E2%80%A2-november-11/

Sunday Shout Out for Sewing workshops. @kennethdking is teaching Moulage and Sleeve Drafting at the @textilecentermn in Minneapolis. You are viewing the cutting out of muslins for the moulage. Next they will sew up the sausage like fitted muslins for a fitting. With these properly fitted, they will make a bodice sloper adding wearing ease, then a jacket sloper and given the instructions for an overcoat sloper. The fun really gets going now. They will be able to design custom fitted clothing for themselves🤗. Armed with basic pattern drafting techniques, the sky is the limit. Kenneth will be offering Moulage and Sleeve Drafting in ATLANTA March 29-31, 2019 and I, Ryliss Bod, will follow up with basic pattern drafting techniques and how to use you slopers to alter commercial patterns in “Alter & Design” April 1. Register at the website link in the bio of @sewing_and_design_school Go to the Calendar page or Upcoming Classes page. www.sewinganddesignschool.com. 👍👍👍👍👍We are also taking these workshops to REDWOOD CITY, CA south of SAN FRANCISCO next Memorial Day Weekend 2019.

We had an interesting presentation on natural dyeing, spinning and weaving cotton in San Juan La Laguna at @casaflorixcaco. It’s a beautiful quiet town with many weavers and painters.

#suminagashi This Japanese marbling art was originally used solely for meditation with only black ink. I learned this from a #textilecentermn class at a Hennepin County Library it was as creative and meditative as it was informative! The one that I did with the black ink had some shapes that reminded me of The Nightmare Before Christmas movie!

#bengaladye #japaneseculture This last June I took a Bengala Dying class with a fantastic teacher from the #textilecentermn and this silk scarf was the result! A traditional Japanese dying technique that uses the pigments from different soil samples from their country. Check it out because it is awesome!

Day 2 in Guatemala and we spent the morning with a group of weavers in San Antonio Agua Calientes, led by Lidia Lopez. They are located twenty minutes from Antigua on the slopes of the Acatenango volcano. The textiles that are woven in this small village are considered to be the finest in all of Guatemala. The weavers are renowned for using a very complex double-sided weaving of flowers and birds on a simple backstrap loom. #guatemala #weaving #backstraploom #textilecentermn

Dye your own cotton. Sometimes your vision is that specific that you MUST DYE YOUR OWN. Sandy Baron is a master of dye chemistry who will be teaching Fiber Reactive Dyes on Cotton on November 7. You’ll get a handle on dye fundamentals that will start you on your way to executing on your vision. Quilting comes to mind, but of course you might be doing cotton rag rugs, or many things with cotton yarn, or surface design like batik. There are so many reasons to get good at dyeing plant fibers. This class is essential. https://textilecentermn.org/product/fiber-reactive-dyes-on-cotton-%E2%80%A2-november-7/

To look at this serene Lady Slipper image, you would never think its beauty has anything to do with punching and tension. Ah, but those are key elements of punch needle rugs. Instead of pulling your wool through from the front as in rug hooking, rug punchers punch it through from the back. Kim Scanlan will be teaching the basics of punch needle on Nov. 7 & 14, sharing the chops she picked up training with @amy.oxford (whose Instagram you should check out for inspiration). https://textilecentermn.org/product/punch-needle/

I’m sure we all intrinsically understand that creativity can really be sparked when we encounter something new. It’s probably even happened to you - after your travels, while at college, or when you meet a new person with a different outlook on things. It’s been proven that the most innovative things happen when two different cultures come together. So, what does it mean for our society’s ‘collective creativity’ when we live more and more of our lives in the digital realm, where we’re algorithmically fed ultra-personalized, cozy & familiar content all of the time? 🤔 This is the big question I’m pondering for my Jerome Project Grant....

With the early cool temps and evening darkness, I’m already thinking about Jul, or Yuletide. Germanic peoples celebrated the darkest days of winter through terrifying tales of the Wild Hunt across the night sky and an emphasis on ready hospitality for neighbors near and far. Like most things, Jul was Christianized into the December holidays we know now. A popular Scandinavian Jul tradition is decorating with straw ornaments with red accents. 
Bonnie Buzza is teaching this technique in Wheat Weaving: Scandinavian Ornaments on November 7. (No, it is not too early!) Imagine a tree full of these rustic and joyful delights. You’ll learn how to make Tomte (little fellas) and julbock (holiday goats) and gain the chops to add more shapes and creatures after class. https://textilecentermn.org/product/wheat-weaving-scandinavian-ornaments-%E2%80%A2-november-7/

What the heck is a “bog coat”? Well. It’s based on an ancient woven garment found in a bog in Denmark. This pattern-less coat is low waste, environmentally friendly, and has so many possibilities! Ella Ramsey has mastered it and is going to show you how to sew this simple-yet-effective garment. It is easy to make with 1 1/2 yards of 54” wide fabric so, as Ella says, “bring the good stuff!” October 11 & 18.  https://textilecentermn.org/product/the-bog-coat-%E2%80%A2-october-11-and-18/

So great to have a friend visit me at Textílsetur Íslands this morning!  Minnesotans Renay and Jerry are traveling Iceland’s ring road and made a quick stop in Blönduós. Renay and I share a common thread in our love of Textile Center in Minneapolis. 💗💗💗

Our students can’t get enough of eco-printing. If you haven’t gotten into this beautiful surface design technique, check out @carolehallman ‘s September 20 From Plant to Print class. You’ll be investigating how the plants from our Garden to Dye for actually translate to fiber. https://textilecentermn.org/product/from-plant-to-print-%E2%80%A2-september-20/

There’s the sound of crickets, which can be bad or good, and then there’s the sound of Cricut, which is excellent, always. If you’ve been eyeing this miraculous little cut-it-all but you’re a little intimidated by new equipment (admit it, we all are sometimes), then you must register today for Get Started: Cricut Maker Software on September 17. It’s a demo class, so there is homework beforehand. Once you are ready to go, guess what! You can rent a Cricut from the Textile Center’s tool library.

I am taking a beginners felting class with my sister at the textile center in St. Paul. This was my first creation. Just a chunk of various colored wools but i sure learned a lot and we had a blast.

I was lucky enough to meet with @weaving.origami Susie Taylor (this is her work shown here) this morning for a critique of my work and a short chat about textile art. What an amazing person! She gave me encouragement and some words of wisdom that will help me along my #textileartist path — I was right in the middle of feeling stuck for my Jerome Fiber Grant work so it was especially helpful. Thanks for your time, Susie! 😊😊

You can see #susietaylor ‘s beautiful and deceptively simple weavings at the @textilecentermn right now. They are really wonderful! 💖

@Sandraa.Brick is reviving her Design & Color Theory class on September 17! Is it time to enhance your mad technical skills with improved design concepts? Good design starts with understanding the basics. Here you’ll learn principles like balance, contrast, pattern, rhythm, and line to see how color affects design elements and how design elements can play off and with color. https://textilecentermn.org/product/design-and-color-theory-combo-%E2%80%A2-september-17/
