June Meeting

Our June meeting featured a presentation of fabric and paper printing techniques by Jan. She explained how to make a textured journal cover and demonstrated using a Gelli plate, stencils and various paints to create unique designs.

We saw a show-and-tell of dolls by Karen, Michele and Maria and quilted tuffets by Teresa and Mary.

Coming up:
• June •
"Association" at Coast Collective. This exhibition includes a display of Alice in Wonderland dolls by our member Maria.
• July •
"Dolls 'R' Us" at the Sidney Museum and Archives. The Cloth-A-Dollics are preparing a large display of our cloth art dolls for this popular summer show.

Here's what we saw at our meeting this month:
