Contemporary Approaches to Traditional Technique (#1305) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

There is always a lot of discussion on what makes a traditional technique have a contemporary feel.

Today's show features current artists sharing their interpretation of some traditional techniques. Cheryl Sleboda demonstrates dimensional fabric manipulation of circles. Then, Michelle May has an introduction to folk art fusion. The fun and whimsy of folk art is fused together with the freedom of art quilting. Finally, Max Hamrick, a dye expert from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, has a lesson on organic dyes passed down thru the years.
