Artisan Pillow Series and Border Collie

The pillows are all hand painted by Canadian Federation Artist Member, Eileen Gidman. Painting with fibre reactive dyes makes the textiles washable and keeps the fabric soft.
The 'Artisan Pillow Series' is being introduced this upcoming weekend at the Open Air Markets in:
  • Radium: Fri 4-9 pm, July 26 & Aug 2
  • Invermere: Sat 9 am-1pm, July 27 & Aug 3
'Berry Beautiful'

'Design Modern'

'Oh Those Columbine'

The Border Collie wanted her picture taken with her new toy. She especially loves it because of the squeaky toy that I stuffed inside.

'Family Farm'

'Ethereal Petals'
'Three Roses'

'A Cottage Summer'

'Towering Tall'
'Mauve Memories'

These are all gorgeous, Eileen. I'd be hard pressed to choose a favourite!

The pillows are all so beautiful! I sure wish I lived close enough to take a workshop from you to learn how to handle the dyes with such detail and vibrancy!
