About Me

Main September Meeting

Most people are now back from their summer holidays and were eager to get started working again.  We had much discussion about the coming workshops with Isobel Hall in October and November. It is quite difficult to get the things you need in this area, however we have managed to source kozo paper in large size sheets and I found cocos fibre, Jackie has found some Mod Podge but it will be expensive to order from the internet because of the weight.  However, we are looking forward to our workshops and I am sure it will be fine on the day.
Jackie had visited the exhibition Cloth and Memory 2, at Salt's Mill and gave it an excellent review, so much so, I have persuaded my daughter to go with me in the half term break.  You can easily fit in a trip to Bombay Stores on the same day.  The exhibition is on until the 3rd November. 
People are now starting to concentrate on their exhibition pieces and they are all coming on well.  It is amazing how everyone has a different take on the same topic.
Next month we bring our 'Chinese Whispers' pieces and see where it has taken us.  For those who don't know what we are doing - all will be revealed on the October blog.
Below are some of the pieces being worked on that all have the theme of water for the 'Elements' exhibition.
