This post is written especially for our main fan, Sheila. She donated this large piece of calico (amongst loads of other fabrics) to us and using it has given us a lot of pleasure and many more hours developing it further. Sue took the Workshop and brought all her paints and brushes with her for our use and did all the supervising which is no mean task believe me. we all took part in painting this large piece of fabric using any colours we fancied, then moved around the table painting on a different patch each time.
This piece was very wet, but there’s a clothes line in the centre for us.
Now doesn’t it look good?
Now the fun begins. I noticed the shadows and remembered how I used to make shapes on the wall when I was a child.
I like that idea, but this time the topic is architecture, not hands. This fabric will be cut up to give us a piece each to develop ourselves, so watch this space!
We deserved a cup of tea and a piece of that lovely lemon sponge cake made by Rhiannon once more. It was mouth-watering.
These are are pages from Sue’s mixed media journal. very inspiring. The one on the right was a firm favourite with everyone. I was going to add a video of them chattering away Sheila so you could hear how noisy they are, but it won’t upload just now.If you check back later it might have arrived. i hope you enjoyed the afternoon with us?
