Soba Making

Had the most amazing experience making soba today. Learned age old techniques of transforming buckwheat into noodles from Sonoko Sakei who is a certified soba maker, got my hands in food, slurped away on fresh yummy chewy noodles, and then cooked our soba at home for dinner. Some things are so much about the beauty of process. All the proceeds from class went to Japan. She'll be teaching at Bread Bar next.

bits of the week

CSULB Fiber Shows

The Fiber Department at CSU Long Beach was out in full force in three of the five student galleries a few weeks back. My "Third Eye" doorway hanging was part of the group show along with Greg's sea creatures, Rosary's wool coat, Krista quilt from Hilary Hopkin's Fiber Dyeing last semester and three more students from her Fiber Sculpture class. The last two images are Jennifer and Noelia's solo Fiber BFA shows. Good stuff!

Having fun with a newly dyed piece of indigo cloth (logwood plus 5 dips in the indigo vat!) before having to cut it up for a project.
