As the weather has cooled I am in my studio creating some new class samples. These are a couple of pages from a mixed media book I am making.so much fun to just relax and see what happens. Paper casting, pockets, embossing, stitch and beading...anything goes!
Not long now until the wonderful Hanmer Springs Autumn Art School (11-20 may). I am offering three different classes, so sure to be something to enjoy. The scenery will be wonderful as I am sure there will be some snow on the mountains after the latest cold spell...but the welcome will be warm and the classes are both fun and interesting.
One of my newest classes 'The Scripted Journey' is a great way to free up your art practice and enjoy some creative mark making.
Hello to you all. Life has been busy here and now it is time for you to think about how you will develop your creativity for 2018. I have several interesting opportunities available for you to join me in beautiful surroundings. See details on my 'upcoming events page'. I love the opportunity to share my knowledge and enjoy working with some fabulous students.
The image is of a small book I made using Cas Holmes style of creating my own paper before stitching into it to create a little nature book.
The last market went really well for me... so much so that I am now having to make more swans for this market which I am booked for. Why not come and see the gorgeous decorations (and Christmas cat ornaments ) I have been making? Lots of lovely little goodies...angels, small books, collaged art pieces....
I had a good day at the market on Saturday, although it was very quiet for many of the stallholders. My swans were a huge hit and I only have one left. I am booked to do the Pretty Christmas market in the Stoke Memorial Hall on Sunday 10th December so will need to make some more. I sold several of the small Christmas cats, an assortment of other decorations and lots of the small books.
