This week and next at Eau Brink Studio.

What have we been up to then?  Apart from making items to see that is.

Running successful Airbnb experiences. I am amazed at how many people want to book through Airbnb for their play days. This week was all about dyeing with Acid dyes.

fantastic colours

A great day full of bright colours. Everybody enjoyed their day and took home a huge amount of finished fleece. Some even bought yarn they had spun to dye.

This encouraged a great debate on how to spin your yarn as well as if its best to dye it first.

The outcome of this debate was of course what ever suits you.

In school this week the children made spooky decorations including bat garlands. The aim of the day was to improve scissor skills.

The week ended with the King’s Lynn Embroidery Guild workshop with Moira Neale. Stitching quirky faces. Everybody managed to finish a face and they were all very different. We started the day worrying about the drawing side of it but found that it was not a problem. the quirkier the better for this one.  Moira will be attending the King’s Lynn Embroiderers guild on the 29th May 2019 to talk to us about an old cotton sheet? It will be fascinating to see what she is going to tell us she made from the sheet.

 

Next week is the Wymondahm Makers Art and Craft Exhibition. Why not come along and take a look at the fantastic items on offer. It opens on Tuesday the 23rd October and ends on Sunday 4th November. And whilst your in Wymondham why not call in to The Big C for some supplies?

 

 

On a more personal note. this week I managed to master a new move in Aerial Slings.

I love this type of exercise as it challenges me as well as makes me fitter and stronger.

It really helps with those aches and pains.

 

 

For those of you who are part of the Embroiderers Guild or want to join the King’s Lynn Branch why not pop over to the Facebook Page and have a snoop around. It is being updated this week so you may see lots of posts initially but it will then calm down to only a few a week.
