Barbara Skinner presented a program  using flowers and leaves in your fiber art.  Two parts water and one part glycerin is the formula for preservation.  A cool, dark place facilitates the process during six days when the leaves are soaked in the solution, with a weighted press, with turning occurring every day.  Pat dry and allow air drying after this process. 

Renee Hoeprich showed how to use flora as a design element in a hands-on demonstration.

Class on July 14

CFAL will hold a workshop on Saturday, July 14, 2012 from 10 AM till 2 PM.

Jane Olson Phillips and Susie Blyskal will teach basket making. Members can choose from 2 types of baskets – knotted or coiled. There is no fee for members. A needle will be provided. You need to bring the supplies listed. It will be held in Baton Rouge.

Supplies: scissors, various yarns (not baby yarns), firm cord or rope. We recommend the rope or clothesline to be ¼ inch size. Home Depot or Lowes may have the clothesline rope. I went by Home depot today and they have lots of rope of different colors and sizes. Most of their rope is mixed fibers - polyester and cotton or nylon, but it will work.

If you have any questions about supplies, please contact me or Jane.

I am attaching some photos of Jane's work and a picture form one of her books of the types of basket you can make. These are very contemporary. #1 coiled basket by Susan Blyskal, #2 Jane's knotted basket #3 bottom of Jane's knotted basket, #4 wallhanging by Jane. This looks complicated but it is easy to learn. Jane taught me in a short period of time.
