My mother, my mother’s friend Lucille and I did the Wave tour last Saturday, visiting about 6 different artist’s studios and galleries. It was a perfect day for travelling through Winnipeg Beach, Gimli and up to the Fat Cat Bistro- a great restaurant in the middle of nowhere about 10 minutes north of Gimli! My husband and I are going to do the drive to the bistro sometime this summer for lunch. Maybe we can also do the September Wave tour and hit a jewelry studio that was difficult to access because of flooded-out roads…(the shop itself was safe)
As usual, the highlight of the studio tour was Heidi Hunter( see her website at http://www.runswithscissors.ca/). I bought a shibori dyed shirt, some shibori dyed fat quarters and some deconstructed screen printed fabric. The screen printed fabric is fabulous:
I will have to think carefully before I cut into it….but I am thinking messenger bag…..Definitely have to learn this technique developed by Kerr Grabowski I think.
