Open Studio May 3rd and 4th

The count down begins and I am very excited to be opening my Studio as an Artist in Residence at Beechmont Community Centre 1835 Beechmont Road Beechmont, from 9am till 4pm both Saturday and Sunday. My neighbour and friend Nicole Crosswell will also be opening her studio at the same venue. The cafe and community garden will be open on these days too. I will have heaps of new work inspired from the Elizabeth Bunsen workshop I attended in Newcastle.

others work from newcastle

Its a week since we started our workshop with Elizabeth…. and I am home now and back to the real world ! Luckily it’s School Holidays so at least there’s no lunches to prepare. Last night was my first chance to look at some stitching and book making from my samples. The photos are from others in the workshop and wow what a talented bunch.

paper play with Elizabeth

Oh what fun folding stitching stuffing with leaves and into the pot, loads of sharing with a very talent bunch of ladies and David ( Elizabeth’s husband) who tended the pot with great diligence. Shared  a lovely lunch each day by Anne from Timeless Textiles


off to newcastle to attend a workshop

I am off to Newcastle to play with Elizabeth Bunsen for three days ….. I have got most of the ingredients to play with as we are making …. Tea, Leaves and Sandwich Magic and i am very excited. I need to make a couple of thing before I go … the troops need lunches and instructions for cooking dinner!
