Guest Artist Diana Trout
Keeping with our guest theme of wearable art, Diana Trout returns to our Summer Creativity Retreat to teach us how to make wrap bracelets! Similar to the trendy and pricey Chan Luu bracelets, Diana will teach us how to make a single wrap bracelet.
Diana’s professional life is weighted equally between her twin passions for teaching and creating. Her stitched mixed media painting, watercolor and book arts have been exhibited nationally. Her artwork and articles have appeared in national magazines.
Trout’s book, Journal Spilling, Mixed Media Techniques for Free Expression is used by artists, art journalers and teachers. Diana teaches in person and online as well as maintaining an active blog and YouTube channel. You can find her at DianaTrout.Typepad.com

About our guest artist Debrah Block in her own words:
“i am in love with colors- they are intoxicating and seductive, and I have a passion for form and texture. i learned to sew at age 4. I have loved textiles ever since. I have a bfa in painting, and i bring the techniques i learned to silk painting, which is somewhat unorthodox. My projects have included embroidery, knitting, sewing and other traditional needle art forms. i work with silk and wool to create scarves, shawls and accessories. the colors and effects i can achieve with silk dyes and paints are intense and beautiful, and a joy to work with! i use various resists in silk painting such as gutta, salt, alcohol and sugar syrup to achieve different effects and textures.
creating my pieces is always exciting, the unpredictable nature of the interaction between silk and paint is what keeps me growing and changing. every piece is one of a kind.”
