If ever you get the chance to attend one of Caroline Sharkey’s workshop, DO.
If ever you get the chance to take the Ridgetop Tour from Arkaroola, DO….you will end up on top of the peak of Sillers Lookout. Believe me, you would never forget the breathtakingly daring (the tracks make for interesting driving), and the ozzie scenery is stunning.
Now getting back to earth with you…..Attending Caroline’s 2-day workshop – ” Painting With Fabric and Threads” was a great experience. Althgough the technique was not new to me, actually DOING IT and applying it to a favourite image, it meant we (the class) learnt a lot from our teacher and also from each other. We were at Patchwork 33 situated near Wyee which offered peaceful countryside surrounds, ducks wandering past the window, and a shop where purchases once again just seemed to happen like osmosis!
Caroline fielded all our questions without a second glance, even my “dumb” ones, and her enthusiasm to develop our skill was unrelenting. And to top it off, humour was a big part of the day too. THANK YOU Caroline.
Sillers Lookout is my outcome from the two days – it took only a few extra hours at home, to finish it. I just love it – and am looking forward to incorporating new learning into future landscape pieces that are magnets to my imagination.
