What Do You Demo?

Color Hue dye on silk
Last Weekend was The Gathering, a biennial reunion at Sievers School of Fiber Arts on Washington Island. I was busy doing a demo on digital fabric and couldn't do the make-and-take with Kathy Sorensen of Island Fibers. So I sent my husband, Bill, to learn about Color Hue dyes. That's his work above -- simple shibori on a silk scarf.

Kathy did a great job of making it possible for people to experience, in a very short time frame, the fun of surface design. My thanks to Kathy and to Carolyn Foss of Sievers for permission to share these photos.

What technique would you choose to share the fun of surface design at an event? Please use the comment button below this post to share your ideas.
