Winner of Challenge 2016

Pat McKenna

Winner of Challenge 2015






This is the winning garment for the 2015 WAC annual challenge -“textile” with “text”. Myrna Elliott made the jacket at the last minute out of a piece of linen tablecloth she parfait dyed earlier. Parfait dyeing process: stuff cloth into a small jar while layering it with different colored dyes which mix together. Her inspiration was pictures of Picasso drawings of Francoise where he had integrated doves into her hair and face. She also used his famous peace dove. She then added the text, a quote of Japanese Haiku poetry about doves and freedom. Voila!
