I got on a bit of a roll, making mundane clothing for every-day wear… the black and white pinstripe pencil skirt, the printed plaid pencil skirt, the printed plaid circle skirt, and finally this purple, grey, white, and black plaid circle skirt.
In my previous post about my new (Pretty printed prancing period Persian ponies) Byzantine gown, I mentioned also making new accessories to wear with it – namely the collar (Superhumeral) and hanging panel.
For an A&S night (a SCA evening where we practice Arts & Sciences) one of the local artisans taught a workshop on block-printing, and let me borrow two of her fabulous wooden blocks – winged horses based of an extant Persian fabric. While the original is woven, the blocks make great look-similar-from-a-distance printed fabric!
The Black Gold Tapestry is on display at Calgary’s Glenbow Museum as part of the Canada 150 celebration. It’s on display until May 21, 2018, and was installed and first opened on October 7, 2017. I visited the Glenbow with another textile-loving friend (the owner of Black Sheep Handspvn) in early November.
