The ladies at the Walpole Arts and Crafts Club enjoyed making these plaques on Friday Morning. To see more pictures just pop over to the Eau Brink Instagram or Facebook page.

The school children this week enjoyed making pictures using foils from little kits. Fairies and wizards were the most popular. Then we made cards and envelops for family and friends. Not so messy this week. I will put that right next week though.

Whats new for me?

I am going to make jelly roll rugs. A small one to start with just to get a feel for it. I think also I can make bowls using the same method but a little tighter. watch this space for an update on that one.

Colour Therapy Family Time at Eau Brink Studio today.

What on earth does that mean I hear you say?

As a family it can be hard to all get together to do something that can encourage creativity. Something that the entire family can do.

Today a family came to Eau Brink Studio to work with colour. The tricky bit is working out your personal colours. Once done it is just a case of using them to create texture and line using a variety of implements.

 

 

The youngest member of today’s group was 10 years old who became very excited when she realised that just by taking a rubbing and washing it over with a gold ink you can create something beautiful. we also had teenagers and parents. It was a fabulous day watching the nervousness disappear as they became involved in the art.

 

Some of it was drawing, some painting. We had textures with printing and stitching free motion for the first time. A spectacular result on the sewing machine. Just goes to show what can be done with an very old Bernina and a little imagination.

 

 As you can see this is a very talented family. This drawing took a while as the young lady wanted to ensure she managed to get her drawing to look proportionate.

For one so young it is a great piece.

 By the afternoon they entire family had managed to get a number of pieces finished. I love the colours in the eye.

Mum and Dad worked through a number of different ideas ranging from printing to watercolours. All with brilliant results.

Looking forward to the next Colour Therapy Family Time  just to see what they turn out.

This week at Eau Brink Studio as been a bit of a roller coaster of a week.

large working areaSorting out the studio has been a big priority as it is a mess after all the fairs so far.

This is what it should look like.

 

The children at school enjoyed making these wizards. The mess was unbelievable but they had fun.

I am thinking of spiders and cobwebs this week for them.

Pompoms and pipe cleaners for the spiders. Not sure about the cobwebs as yet. But I am sure it will come to me.

 

Teacher and Artist

Cas Holmes will be arriving on Friday evening ready for our exciting  two day workshop with her. That will include using found materials, mark making and stitch. It also means loads of cake.

Cas will be bringing copies of her latest book for you to look at and if you have not already done so there will be a copy or two for sale. Cas is happy to sign her books. So if you already have one please do bring it along with you.

 

I have had some major issues with emails not being received or going into the spam folders. Please check to see if you have missed any and tell your computer it is not spam. My computer guys are on it. I will keep you posted.

Whats coming up?

Please do check the website for workshops as I am now putting on next years. I am aware that there is an issue for those of you with codes to put in. I am sorry it is not working. The computer guys are also looking into that for me. It will be sorted once they work out what the problem is.

Tassels

Clare Hedges Passementerie workshop has spaces in October. to book just follow the link.

It is two days of learning how to make braids, tassels, and those lovely little acorn tassels too.

Passementerie is one of the crafts that is on the endangered list and is in need of some love to stop if from disappearing for ever.

Clare works with the heritage charities, the V&A and heritage homes in private hands to keep their collections looking like the original furnishings. She matches the colours and fibres to make the replacements.

 

Next years programme is now being added to the calendar so book early to ensure your place.
