San Antonio/Austin Circle Meeting

The next meeting of the Austin/San Antonio Circle will be on July 9, 2011, at 10:00 am, at the home of Dee Merrell, in Dripping Springs.


At our July meeting, we still plan to get some inspiration from the world around us, as we gather materials from around Dee's home to use for making sun prints.

Sara Sharp will lead us in playing with sunprints. To participate, you need to bring some white fabric that has been washed and ironed. (It does NOT need to be soda-soaked.) Sara has worked most often with 100% cotton fabric, but we can experiment with other fibers. The size of the pieces we can use will depend on how many people attend and how much table space is available, as each piece needs to dry flat.

If you have it, please also bring Transparent setacolor fabric paints. There will be some available to share, so if you don't already have some, just be prepared to reimburse those who bring paint.

You may also want to bring some things from home to use as a resist/print item. Sara suggests things like paperclips, hangers, stencils - anything that will produce a definite shape.

If you have some board or strong cardboard you can cover with plastic, you might want to bring that along to move your piece(s) from the tables to the ground in order to make room for more pieces at the tables.

Please contact Dee (dee+saqa@merrell.org) to let her know you are coming and get directions.

Bring something to share for lunch, and, if you wish, bring a towel and swim clothes to cool off in the pool.

Enjoy the holiday weekend, and see you on the 9th!
