workshop pictures

here's me on the way to the workshop - looking all normal ..... me ... dumb enough to go to a textile event with a known wool allergy and NO anti histamines - to the wonderful ATASDA lady who gave me one of hers i am forever in your debt - should i ever be able to repay you please let me know...







teacher and artist extraordinare - sharyn hall.... having never known i walk past some of her work regularly at the kenmore shops.... what a wonderful teacher, skilled artisan and sweet sweet woman !!!!





CHEEKY!!!! who me???? yes i was ready for sharyn's first demonstration and yes i was ready with a sharpie for her signature.... no points for guessing what 3 items will be framed and hung on the wall of the studio at the new house when it finally arrives!!!!!


my workspace - before i got going....


and some examples of MY work on the day during the workshop. we used vinyl, perspex, foam and stamps/rubbings with thickened procion dyes (and some paints NOT included in my pics) on natural fibres including cotton, silk and i added some hemp and bamboo to the mix - so if you nappy fabric girls get some new customers from outside the nappying world - well i gave a few stores names/websites out on the day.... so expect some bv buys real soon....
man did i have fun.... i'm thinking this may be MY outlet

It looks wondeful Kaz! A new studio sounds exciting too
