Great Workshops mean Great Fun

What a fabulous weekend we have just had with Amanda Hislop.  A great workshop full of fun as well as stretching our skills.

The concertina sketchbooks were a bit daunting at first but once we got going we sped along the first side on the first day. It was fun sloshing paint, inks and glue over the pages to create a landscape.

Day two was a little bit more of a challenge as we had to work on side two and had to be mindful of side one. We also had to draw into the first side to add detail.

This workshop really makes you think about the landscape around us and makes you look at the detail of every tree, bush, blade of grass and the water.

It is fascinating to see things with this much detail.

Amanda will be back next year in April. Teaching us how to use our sketchbooks to create a piece of art. Anyone can join in all you need is a sketchbook completed with studies of landscapes. But if you want to join in be quick because although we do not have all the details yet we are half full already.

https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/landscape-observations-with-amanda-hislop/

Next months workshops include Nodeen Salmon on the 8th and 9th May. We do still have space if you have been thinking of booking. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/trees-with-nodeen-salmon-2021-05-09/2021-05-08/

A great two days of learning how to create fabulous trees with Nodeen guiding you to your finished piece. Lots of help and demonstrations with this one to ensure beginners can complete a great piece of art.

 

fantastic patterns

May the 15th we are Shirbori style dyeing with Procion dyes. Anita will be demonstrating how to mix the dyes and use them on folded fabric to create lovely designs for future use. This is a modern twist on a traditional technique. Places are limited but if the weather permits we can also work outside to give us more space for larger pieces.

Dyes and some fabric provided along with refreshments.

 

on May the 27th we have beginners bead loom weaving with Ruth Holmes.  A lovely workshop full of glistening beads to create great designs for you to use in your work to to make bracelets. Basic kit provided with the option to purchase a loom of your own. Refreshments provided.

Ready and Waiting

The studio is ready and waiting for your return. The kettle has been replaced, the cups washed to remove the dust again. The cupboards cleaned out again. And I have been ploughing through  all my unfinished items to get them out of the way.

The studio has had a move around so that the side door is now usable and the plan is to have a big outside space. A covered patio is planned just need to get it done now. This will increase the capacity of the studio during the summer months and on the less cold and wet days too. Depending on what we are doing. I may invest in a heater if needed.

The gardening has started and the first seeds are poking their heads out of the compost for the dyers garden. so excited. Hopefully you will see it growing fairly quickly. The planting area has been rotavated ready for planting.  I have two Aloe Vera plants too but am not sure if we can plant them outside. However if I can I will  try and then we will see what we can do with them. The plan is to also plant a few camomile benches in case we need something calming when things do not go to plan. We have also planted a wild meadow for the bees. And of course I will be encouraging visitors to go and pick the flowers and grasses for their work.

During March we have been working on using our scrap bags in the scrap bag challenge. Already one piece has been finished and the picture uploaded onto the social media sites. As they come in I will post them.

For inspiration pop over to my YouTube channel and take a look at what I have been up to with my scraps.

Assuming all goes well we can open in April and will start with our social Wednesday where you can pop in for refreshments and a chat. Bring along something to do but do book in please on https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/social-wednesday-2/2021-04-14/

Children’s art club on a Thursday evening. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/art-club-11yrs-and-older-2021-01-28-2021-02-18/2021-04-15/

Then we have our Experimental Wednesday. This will be a planned day to experiment with fruit and veg under the heat press with man made fibres. We have to hope for a nice day so we can have all the doors and windows open. I have been playing with this and the results are varied. The aim is to get prints from the organic matter and for the man made fibres to shrink to create new shapes. In some cases you will just get the colour from the organic matter which may spread over the fabric. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/stitch-and-create-2020-01-15-2021-04-14/

The First workshop is making a woodland hanging just like the one Melanie has made in this picture. For  more information follow the link https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/woodland-art-hanging-with-melanie-missin/

On the following Thursday Ruth Holmes will be here making Machine Applique postcards. To book just go to  https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/machine-applique-post-cards-with-ruth-holmes/

The Following weekend we have Amanda Hislop and only two spaces due to cancellations. So if you fancy it just go to https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/line-colour-texture-in-landscape-exploring-concertina-books/2021-04-24/

 

We have moved the Pauline Wrighton workshop to August so if you wanted to book but couldn’t make the date try the new date and see if that fits in with you. Just follow the link on Pauline’s name. This workshop is all about learning how to use the various feet for your sewing machine. This is the second one but it is okay if you missed the first as Pauline will help you.

So we are hopefully at the end of many of the restrictions and have all been at least offered a vaccine if not had them.

Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Anita

The Last Week for Time for Tea

Well I do not know where February has gone but apparently it has. We are now in the last week for Time for Tea.  So still time to have a go if you fancy it.

We have had a great response and some have already sent in their finished items. They are on the Facebook page.  I have been working on a book of samples until I finish my end piece. I have to admit I have still to decide what to make but am enjoying revisiting processes and generally exploring. Though the studio looks like a bomb has hit it.

Here is a little picture of one of my finished samples. It is teabag paper dyed with tea and Bister. Then I stamped the design onto it and machine stitched and hand stitched into it. Then the final finish was painting the sky.

I am thinking it would make a nice bag with a bit of acrylic wax added to help reinforce it. Or a book cover. who knows .

The threads are variegated as I like to see where the colours end up.

The next one is in March where we will be working with Any Old Scrap.

Update

As everyone I am waiting eagerly for the Government announcement to see when we can reopen. I just hope that this will be the last time we have to close. I really do miss having people in the studio. The interaction between friends and visitors is amazing and something I dearly miss.

I also miss the baking and have been baking for the workers in the hospital. I have key workers staying in our BNB rooms so send it in at weekends with them.  The day we can open I am inviting you all over for a catch up with tea and cake.

Many of you know that John infiltrated the studio with the 3d printer but now has his own space in the house so I have my glorious space with the heating blasting when I want it and my music up as high as I want it. Though I have to say he has left loads of mess for me to clear up.

Extra News

So what is planned now that the sheep have gone? Well we are currently planting a bee meadow for our bees the only problem we have had is the rotavator has a flat and John cannot get the wheel off but I am sure he will fix it.

Another area of the garden to get the rotavator treatment will be beside the shed next to the studio. I am going to plant it full of dye plants. I will be offering pick your own dyes.

This is still in the planning stage but fancy offering this by the weight of each plant matter picked but will be harvesting roots in advance if they are needed so as not to damage the main plants. But leaves, stems and flowers can be picked as required.

I already sell the mordants but will be offering help where I can with this and of course there will be workshops for it too.

Another new idea that is getting off the ground is a patio extension to the side of the studio where the pond is. This will have a roof and I will make sale curtain sides for the inclement days too. This means that we can work outside as well as in without the gazebo ending in the pond..

Workshops

It is hoped we can open bookings again once the schools fully open. With this in mind the first one may be with Ruth Holmes in

March where she will be teaching Hand Applique flower pictures. It will be nice for Ruth to have a full house but of course we may have to move it to another month. We will see.

In April we have a two day course with Melanie Missin as well as two days with Amanda Hislop.

If you are interested in booking pleas do book in but only pay a deposit of £10.00 per day. This will ensure your place on the workshop and I will let you know when to pay the remainder.

When going into the booking site and it asks you to pay change the amount in the box. It does let you. Any issues just email me.

On another note about payments we now have a QR Code for PayPal which you can use by scanning it with your up to date phones.

Shop

I am so excited as I have been purchasing fabrics for the shop and they have started to arrive. They are lovely and of course I will have to test them all.

I have also been purchasing quilting items and haberdashery items to fill the shelves in anticipation of opening. I will endeavour to get it all on the website. Some of the fabrics are on now.

As more arrive I will add them. The price is not too bad. This one is only £7.00 per metre and it is 100% cotton. Love this colour.

And Now

And now to get on with some more Time for Tea. I look forward to seeing your work

Take Care
