I would like to welcome all of the new likers to the Facebook page. I can remember how excited I was when it got to 100 likers and now we are headed to 1000!!
965 to be precise.
Follow this link and pop over to the website too! All of the new workshop information is there, as well as an online booking form to stream-line the process.
What a productive weekend it has been. Boxes packed, suitcase kind of half-packed, sculptures and art work ready to go to the Craft and Quilt Fair at the Exhibition Centre in Melbourne.
Thanks to Val for helping yesterday with the wrapping of the artworks and to Tina, my sister in law for sorting the wine bottles for the pop-up workshops that will be happening during the Fair. Not quite the 60 required, but then there is always dinner each night!
If you come to the Craft and Quilt Fair, be sure to drop by the Powertex Australia stand. Meet some of the other Powertex Trainers in Victoria : Sharron, Val, Joy, Bev, Jan and Marg. There will be workshops happening all day. A great opportunity to try the fabulous range of Powertex products.
Lois and Jocelyn with some of their work.
Well, I have had a fabuous weekend working with Lois, Jocelyn and Kaz as they finished off their Level 3 and 4 Certified Powertex Trainer Course. Wonderful to see the results that can be achieved using Powertex products, by some very clever people!!
Although there were some concerns that they had not painted much in the past, all the girls achieved wonderful results, proving they were more talented that they were giving themselves credit for.
Lois and Jocelyn finished their mixed media pieces on Saturday for Level 3 and today Kaz joined them to finish Level 4. Kaz's work can also be seen on her Facebook page, Quintessential.
Just confirmed a couple of new Sitting Sculpture workshops.
The first one is with Traralgon and District Arts Society, at the "Art on Track" Gallery, Queens Parade in Traralgon. This will be on Saturday, 22nd June. Bookings are through the Art Society on 51766000.
The other one is at Wyreena Community Arts Centre in Croydon, on Saturday, 13th July.
Pictured is some of the fantastic work completed at the last Wyreena workshop!!
A reminder that I will be at Traralgon Craft Market tomorrow with the faeries, and also featuring the work of Val Prokopiv, Sharron Johnson, and Karell Phillips, the other local Powertex trainers!!
Perfect for that last minute Mothers Day shopping.
So pleased to announce that we have another new Powertex Trainer, Karell "Kaz" Phillips from Traralgon.
I have had the best few days, working with a lovely group of friends on Friday, a bit of a "play day". Just working in the studio, doing our own things, but sharing ideas, trying different techniques, seeing the outcomes of other workshops - thanks Sharron for giving us so many ideas in regard to making your own fabric, and generally solving the problems of the world over numerous cups of coffee.
And then on the weekend, had the pleasure of taking Kaz through the Powertex training program, She now has Level One and Two!!
Well done Karell!!
So enthusiastic, Karell has already started her own Facebook business page, check out https://www.facebook.com/quintessentialessenceofexpression
