I did it again. I signed up for lots more classes. Not just online ones but some real life ones too.
One of the online classes I signed up for was a short duration class with Dione Swift - Developing Sketchbooks - which was excellent. I wasn't thrilled with some of my pages but the techniques and principles apply to anything and I hope to get back to it sometime.
I went to a 2 day class in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire taught by Kim Thittichai where we played with Lutradur, Tyvek, Bondaweb and polyester organza using irons and heatguns.
There's nothing like a bit of bling!
A 3D thing! It was supposed to be a bowl.
And other exciting bits and pieces.
Last Saturday I went to a Shibori Indigo Dyeing workshop led by Liske and Claire at Littleheath Barn. We tried lots of different ways of tying the cloth and then dyeing them in the indigo dye.
I have also been working on the art journal I'm making from Roben-Marie Smith's online class: Art-full Attache. I added the handles and stitched the signatures into the folder. I have started on filling the pages.
I am going on a 3 day workshop with Hilary Beattie called Finding Sanctuary in July and I am using this Art-full Attache to collect together the photographs and ideas for the class. I'm also looking at colour schemes mostly in blue, sand and neutrals.
I can't tell you whose photos have been used by Design Seeds as I can't find the information on their website. I had downloaded the colour charts from Pinterest.
Hilary is repeating the Finding Sanctuary class in October at The Bramble Patch if you are interested.
And there are some other classes I haven't mentioned One Little Word (I'm nearly 2 months behind!), Art and Spirituality (3 weeks behind) and Pathfinder.
Come back on Monday for those updates and a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT.
Thanks for stopping by.
