For five days with Isobel Hall our teacher, our group of 13 worked out little hearts out playing with mixed media. I must say though, that the hard work was coupled with good humour and a positive approach to any little problem that emerged. We all produced beaut bags, tags, and/or book papers.
Working with acrylic and encaustic waxes, a myriad of different paints and embellishment powders, and sorbello and other stitches, our work took the eyes of all visitors to the Forum open day – this is held on the last day when the general public visit to view and purchase pieces of art and craft. Isobel Hall provided us with devoted and skilled assistance – as a result we each produced innoviate and individual work. We left Isobel with much fondness in our hearts.
I completed one bag – a blue one which design and coour just emerged during the workshop. I also partially completed a second bag which will shortly be completed – photo’s of both will be available for you to see, tomorrow. So please revisit then.
The Forum was also a good time to catch up with my fibrefriends from an on-line group – Cath from Melbourne, Rory from Mudgee, and Kaite from Bathurst; and then also Jane from my Sydney based quilters guild. Amazing work was produced – and photo’s will be uploaded shortly.
Please revisit a little later this week for further details of the TAFTA Forum at Orange.
