Carol is the artisit in our group and she paints lovely watercolours. You can tell from the way she's used her transfer paint, can't you?

This is Rosemary's work of art, as yet unfinished, but very beautiful.

A closeup of the previous work. And below is Rosemary teasing me when I tried to take a photo of her. This is the sort of group we are, we work and play.

Transfer paint class

We are so lucky in Serentex that we have so many talented people who are willing to share their expertise. Once again Miriam shared with us when she demonstrated her Transfer Painting techniques.

Here is Miriam.

Miriam showing us some work she's experimenting with.

The result of today's experiment. Isn't it beautifully textured?

Another one, which I like even better.

When Miriam framed the previous work in black, it looked just like an Autumn scene with a beech tree in the foreground.

Tuesday play 3

Joan Park is our doll maker and here is her latest creation, an Ice Maiden. She is a cutie.

Here she is from another angle. Joan is kept busy with making these dolls to commission. If anyone would like to buy one, you can e-mail me and I will put you in touch with Joan.

Ann Jones and Rhiannon Jones have finished their containers and are making me feel very guilty as I still haven't finished mine.

Tuesday play 2

You saw this piece as a work in progress, but it is now finished and has turned out as a very special piece of work.

Here is a detail of the work by Sue Gallagher.

Samples of fiber Fusion.

Sue has a book of details and samples of her work.

Tuesday play

Here you can see how well Rosemary's quilt is developing. I think she has nearly finished it now and it's absolutely beautiful. She calls it her 'Australian Quilt' and the reason for this is that her daughter visited Australia last year. When she asked her mother what she wanted brought back for her, she naturally said she would like some quilting magazines! So the design for the quilt is from an Australian Quilting magazine.

Rosemary Kenyon, who made the quilt is here on the right and Mary Spence is on the left, who has just returned from her daughter's wedding in Canada. On the far left just in the picture is Tricia Sherry who is rather camera shy and I hardly ever have a photo of her. But she is a very important member of the group as she is the one who has organized our visits to Plas Tan y Bwlch for the last 5 or 6 years.

Margaret Beale

These are tyvek stitched and heated flowers Joan made using the Three Dimensional Embroidery book by Janet Edmunds.

Now what do you think Margaret Beale and her students at the class find so interesting?

Very interesting! They are all looking at two wonderful dolls that Joan made. I'm sorry I have no close-ups of the dolls, the one I took was not a very good quality I'm afraid.
