Jane Dunnewold - Women of Influence, A Personal Tribute

I first met Jane through Jane's Craftsy video on dying with procion dyes so when Christchurch Quilt Symposium had her listed as a tutor I enrolled right away. Doing a five day workshop (actually a three day and then a two day workshop) with Jane in 2017 changed my artistic life. The programme was on surface design and I was introduced to layering, stamping, thermofax screens, resists, discharge dying and laminating paper to fabric. It opened a whole new world of textile art. The following year I signed up for Jane's online Creative Strength Training where I learnt about archetypes and faced some of the demons that prevented my work from going forward. Since then I have followed Jane on YouTube and her mailing list. I think I have all of her books because from time to time I like to just delve into her techniques again.
