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. It could be the colors, it might be the simplicity of the design, and sometimes it's even negative space. 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.

Modern Quilting Meets Folk Art (#1307) Duration: 28:00 STEREO TVG

Today's three designers take a simple approach with very different techniques. First, Catherine Redford makes a modern place mat using hexagons. Then, Ebony love demonstrates die-cut trapunto. Finally, Michelle May shows how to create a felted flower brooch in the folk art style.
