We launch Series 1500 with a visit to the Texas studio of artist, instructor, and author Jane Dunnewold, well known for the one-of-a-kind fabrics she creates with printing, dyeing, resist, and other manipulations. In this episode, Jane discusses the meaning of surface design, and shows how she transfers a black-and-white copyright-free image to prepared for dye (PFD) silk, which she then embellishes with watercolor pencils and needle felting. You'll love our tour of her wet/dry studios, a delightful blend of old and new. Finally, Jane, who uses a hula hoop as a preventative for back problems, coaxes Alex and Ricky to give this childhood classic a try it. An informative—and fun—start to a new season!
