Today at Eau Brink Studio was My Artistic Colour Journey workshop where we had a great time exploring what our colours are.

Only using those colour’s we then created art.

We used  Acrylic pints and inks.  Powertex, Procion Dyes and papers  to mention just a few of the medium used. The work was interesting and exciting as well as a little surprising.

Today was a Procion Fun day at Eau brink Studio where we all mixed our colours to dye our fabrics.

The folding, Clamping and tying resulted in some fantastic designs in wonderful colours on cloth.

Drip dye onto it or dip it?
Wrap it, tie it, scrunch it.

Once we got the hang of it there was no stopping us. Rivers of dye were added to cloth to make it colourful and exciting.

Whats been happening in weeks one and two at Eau Brink Studio?

Quite a bit more than I thought.

We have commenced the Blackwork Embroidery class on a Monday and moved it to the afternoons instead of the evenings. You can still join us if you wish. Its very low key and sociable.

I am getting ready for exhibitions for the year, so sewing samples and making finished items to show.

Layer upon layer

Also getting ready for the fairs. That means make, make, make. I am also making for the local shops that stock my items.

One of my best sellers is these scissor sets.

It is going to be an exciting year for the studio as I am moving into new territory, with new workshops and new work
