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.

Embellishing means different things to different people. There are many ways to embellish your clothing and work but have you ever thought of using an Embellishing machine? I had and then decided it was not for me so have resisted using one for a long time. For me it was due to the breaking of needles which becomes expensive if the needles all have to be replaced at the same time. However , I recently found that you can get a machine that only needs the needles replaced one at a time. Far more economical.

So now Eau Brink Studio has a new machine to help with felting items together. To see it in action just follow this link to the Facebook page. This is showing you one of the many flowers I am making ready for next year. You will be able to buy them individually or in packs for you to use on your own work or as a brooch.

They will also be available as pictures and hangings once finished. I am going to add beads as well as other items. Here are some as works in progress. They just need the beads added and framing. Though I may add a little bit more to them.

This may make a nice little workshop for just half a day.

 

 

Sequins for glittering baubles

Boy have I got through a shed load of hand cream making these lovely baubles. Big thank you to John for cutting hundreds for little squares for me for the workshops.  For those of you who could not make these due to fingers not wanting to work, I know you enjoyed making the sequin versions as it is easier to get the pins to go into the balls, bells and hearts.

 

How many of you guys want to be able to sew fabulous designs but struggle to find the designs you like at a reasonable price? I can help you with that. Pink Ink Designs print onto fabulous linen ready for you to paint and stitch.

Hand stitch is required

I love this design as it lends itself to many stitches. The bonus with these is that you can paint them first then stitch into them. Once I have stitched this I will post it for you to see the finished item.

 

 

I am now slowing down for the holiday season. but I am around if you want to drop in for a coffee and cake or just a chat. Call first on 01553 762115 or message me on 07827674920 and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I am at Silverwood in Long Sutton and The Craft Barn also in Long Sutton. Both are open 10 till 4 daily. Though the Barn is open late on Thursdays.
