The second 2 day workshop I taught in Adelaide was Old Doors and Openings and once again I provided comprehensive notes and a kit. I was really thrilled at the results of this class. We spent day 1 creating heaps of textured pages ready to use on day 2 for constructing our pieces. Not just doors but surrounds and openings. Openings and the possibility of what is behind the opening is to me a great concept - the mysteries of what lies beyond. Karen's work at the top is so very effective - I loved it - but I loved them all. Some naughty people had packed up before we got to view - I am pretty hopeless and making them stop half hour early for compulsory look see but then - some people don't wish to take part in this exercise and I guess it is their right - they have paid the money. It was a very big class and a wee tad squashed so I was clearing my own desk as fast as I could for display.And my apologies for not knowing who owned which pieces but do enjoy them.
Can't remember her name and it had been packed away but I persuaded her to bring it out - loved it - there are steps to go at the bottom of the door
Sheana was busy
It was so lovely to catch up with Vicki who came from NSW (not just to see me though) and this is her work which is super wonderful
So - a great workshop - I was bowled over by the creative juices flowing - they seemed to be working early and late - I had lots of laughs at night and I am working on my offering for 2019 - shall it be Medieval - Paris - Morocco - or? and yes notes and a kit
Eucalyptus leaves were our leaves - and there are so many colours and shapes so there was plenty to work on and with. Easily be many of the other trees in the world.
We made backgrounds and cords and many different leaves. Here is some of the wonderful work.
Lots of interesting backgrounds - printing - stencils etc - we worked on calico and hessian
Then loads of leaves...
Thank you to all of the class - and they were busy as for 2 days.
