Time with a tutor, Jan Clark, was stimulating and relaxing – a great combiniation in my book!
Often workshops are high pressure and rushed – not so at Jan’s “Botanical Songs” workshop. Dont get me wrong, it wasnt a hazy lazy time.
Wandering the surrounding gardens I found this beautiful ground flower for my art specimen.
Working with dedication and application, I learnt not only useful techniques but also ways to think about design and composition in my pieces.
We also spent time experimenting with transfer dyes – great fun with happy results on polyester fabrics.
Here’s a photo of another application we used. Stay tuned as more will follow shortly.
