Well, it has been nearly nine months since I last posted anything on the blog.
I post a lot of links, arty bits and pieces on the faeries facebook page, but that has been about it! So finally, the website has just been updated and here I am again.
So, what have I been up to?
During the year I have joined a fibre art/textiles group which meets weekly. This fabulous group of ladies are so talented and I feel as though I have learnt so much and seen my art work lead in different directions. The group does a different activity on each Friday of the month: from creating our own fabric with water soluble backings; painting on fabric; felting and other activities and workshops. It is my "not negotiable" day in the diary. I don't give up my Fridays for anything!
I recently attended a resin workshop, which is something I have always wanted to explore and am now seriously addicted.. Just love the brilliance of the colours, and the way it moves and flows. Although, I am fairly new at this, I am completing a few pieces for local art exhibitions, which is exciting, and have had family members wanting artwork for their homes. This piece is a coffee table I got from an op-shop and then coated with resin.
Because of my health issues, I will only be teaching from the studio in Churchill in the future .I think after travelling the country-side in my little red faerie van for so many years, the novelty has well and truly worn off. I still love teaching and seeing people create some amazing artwork during the workshops.
We bid farewell to the faerie van a few months ago!
I will still be teaching any of the Powertex workshops I did previously, including the Powertex Trainer course, plus a few of my own, such as the felted bears and clay birds. Also, I will be teaching the polymer clay hand-sculpted character doll workshops. This is a two day workshop, but I will no longer be teaching consecutive days. However, I am sure dates can still be worked out - just not Fridays!
Enjoy your creativity and never be afraid to try something new
