Hi everyone, hope all of my fellow Victorians are managing to keep warm with this cold snap we are having at the moment. I am finally over this horrible flu, that put me out of action for a few weeks. Finally feeling like getting back down to the studio, I had a lovely 'play day' on Friday, doing a little bit of felting, with one of my friends. Scarves were produced and lots of fun had!!
Some changes to the training program. Most people are aware that I usually only do the Certified Powertex Trainer Course from the home studio.
I will be travelling to Daylesford and doing Level One and Two there, on Saturday, 23rd and Sunday, 24th of August, at the Daylesford Neighbourhood Centre. So for those people north of Melbourne, it is a fabulous opportunity to do the course and not have to travel to Gippsland. Places are still available.
Now that I am "flu-free" and not at risk of passing it on to anyone, I am available for workshops again on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Arty Parties are still happening. Bring along four of your friends to the Churchill studio and get your workshop for FREE. This applies to any of the workshops that I do, including the new ones.
And what are the new ones? I will be taking the following new workshops:
And the new training days are as follows:
Powertex Sculpture Class at Gasworks, Albert Park - Sunday, 31st August

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.
How fabulous to see Powertex Australia at so many Stiches and Craft Shows and Quilt and Craft Fairs throughout Australia and New Zealand next year.
I am so excited about being at both major shows next year with Ashley, the Importer/Owner of Powertex Australia in Melbourne next year.
The Quilt and Craft Fair will be on from Thursday, 26th to Sunday, 29th of June and the Stiches and Craft Show is at Caulfield Race Course from Thursday, 23rd to Sunday, 26th of October.
2014 will be a great Powertex year!!
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.
I am Rhonda Hunt, from Faeries with Attitude, a Gippsland based artist, who dabbles in all sorts of things. Ideas, thoughts, silly musings at midnight, assorted bits of inspirational stuff, and things to get your creativity going. I have tried just about every craft known, so my interests are quite eclectic. Hopefully, you will find something here to interest you.
