Spring Cleaning

I am having a rethink about the direction of my work and what I do at the moment so my attention has been turned to having a bit of a clear out. I realise that I have far too much stuff and it is really time to downsize as I suspect in many ways it is inhibiting creativity.

One of the first step I have taken is to revitalise my shop. Over the coming weeks I will be adding all kinds of things that may well be of interest.

In the meantime I have listed some selections of naturally dyed silk threads and some fabric packs of odds and ends

Always more to Learn

I am not an habitual giver of workshops – it is not really my style and I feel that I still have so much to learn. However when the opportunity arose to do a workshop at ArtVanGo, I decided to cave in. In the end I had a blast. The students were lovely and wanted to work really hard and the results were stunning!
We worked on fabric and paper and I think everyone went home with something rather special and my point about learning was proven since I came away feeling I had learned as much as they had!
Here are some of the highlights – there were many many more but not captured on camera.

For anyone interested, the orangey red on images 3 and 4 come from aquelegia – who would have thought!

Many thanks to Viv and Kev for their hospitality. If anyone is in the neighbourhood of Knebworth and doesn’t know about it, ArtVanGo is a treasure trove of supplies of all kinds.
