Alcohol Ink workshop Shevington Library

Well pretty poor show- its ages since I last blogged under my own pages-

However I ran a very good workshop today on Alcohol Inks at Shevington Library & Art Gallery. 12 students attended and most of them were from an Art Group- very daunting!!

However they were a lovely group of ladies who were willing to experiment & go wild!

I think some were so impressed that they wanted to further this technique and incorporate it into their art work.

I took plenty of photos as below- Ladies at work!!

Examples of their work using yupo paper, foam board, metal, wood, tissue paper, tiles etc etc There are some stunning and unexpected pieces.

Bay Horse Craft Fair

Well I'm ashamed to see that I have not posted anything since September. In my defence I have been extremely busy as North West Chair for the Embroiderers Guild- drowning in paperwork!!!

Anyway after two failed craft fairs- one by flood and the other by being given the wrong date, I have managed to run a stall at a fairly successful craft fair at The Bay Horse in Adlington.

Despite having the rements of a cold, and the Bay Horse Barn being freezing, I managed to do pretty well.

cardiff and beyond

Well just got back from a short break in Cardiff- what a beautiful city. Compact and easy to navigate.
We were very impressed with the free entry to places and cheap tickets for boat trips and cinema etc.

I took loads of photos as usual and a few are below-
