Busy, busy workshop

Saturday's painted fabric workshop was a great success. The sun shone beautifully for our sun printing, after a week of rain I was beginning to wonder what Saturday would hold, but in true Melbourne style the sun came out and everything was fine.

The ladies made some wonderful paper fabric too from paper napkins and there stamps and printed fabrics where gorgeous.


Joanne and her mountain of torn napkins.


Nicky with her elephants.


Caryn's beautiful rich colours


Sue's old world look.


All heads down.


These are some of the wonderful results of their sun printing and their stamp printing.


These are the gorgeous paper fabrics.
Sorry ladies I didn't get photos of everyone's but they were all fabulous.

I was also very lucky to have one of my felt brooches added to Glass Creek textiles Etsy Treasury.
Thank You, that was very kind.

Your class looked so bustling and busy and exciting. The paper napkin art turned out fantastic. I wish you were located in the states..maybe you'll do an online class someday, but it wouldn't be as much fun as what I'm seeing in your studio.

It looks an exciting class, I get great satisfaction from running workshops, but I have trouble finding students. By the way I put a link to your painting on envelopes in my last post, and I made my first stamp using the wood burning tool!

This looks amazing Ro.
Incredible industrious and all that fantastic colour.
I still get comments about your pomegranate. I did a 2 page spread on the mail art for my new little book 'Homage to the seed' I created for the exhibition opening next week.. Will share more on that soon.
I really wanted to pay tribute to the gorgeous people who participated in that callout!

best,
Sophie
