Northampton Workshop

I have just spent a lovely weekend in Northampton (the Western Australian one) and I stayed at Horrocks with Di and Ian , who were wonderful hosts - crayfish for lunch was a treat and I behaved myself by sitting through an Aussie Rules game only falling asleep for a short time and then Eagles won. Sadly I had to wait until today to find out what happened in the rugby but the Hurricanes were beaten.

My class arrived well before me on the Sunday - they worked hard and created some lovely work. That is one of the exciting things about workshops - everyone learns something new and I always get new ideas from what people do.

The old paper napkins went down well and it always amazes me the different results you get
Joan didn't really want to sew......

We did a variety of different things

Wonderful from Leonie

And some more

And then she found my three fat sparrows moulding mat which she insisted were three fat chooks - who am I to disagree?

Jude produced these ethereal pieces

I am not sure whose these were but we started talking about additions to silk

Di was planning with rods

A few more additions to silk

Helen stitched some rods

She was also busy with napkins - this was lovely

And some layering

Not sure whose this was but Bonny who whipped her work away before I could catch it was working in pink

I think Dell did this one

More additions

A variety of activities

And more

And more

Simple transfer with some great results

Barbara's pieces were fantastic

Some casting awaiting

Some more of Barbara's work

And she found my favourite sponge alphabet stamps


And the sunset at Horrocks - thanks everyone for a delightful weekend - I loved all the work and enjoyed the surrounds.

Hello! Dale,

What a creative weekend you had, your students turned out some stunning work, sign of a good teacher i'm sure. Sorry to hear your Hurricane's lost, better luck next game.

Your workshop must have been a treat for your students - their work is stunning. I love the design with the feathers, and the layered pieces, but they are all so good.

Looks like a great time was had by all Dale and I am glad that you watched some real footy--adds to you education you know.

Dammit! Victoria is so far away. Can you move over here? There is rugby (I think). I want to do some workshops!
