Today was the final day in my workshop teaching calendar for 2015.
I am delighted that the final workshop for the year was with the talented and lovely group
Stitching & Beyond. There were sixteen enthusiastic pencil workers in this group. They are not calligraphers but enjoyed a little text instruction!
Purely Pencils Plus
We worked pencils into smooth gesso and textured gesso.
We worked pencils under gold leaf.
We enjoyed graffito into gold leaf with pencils.
In our downtime
... twiddling thumbs time ...
we worked the mandala,
emptying our minds, relaxing and just enjoying the pencil process.
What a marvelous array of works created by this lovely group of local Tasmanians. Thank you Stitching & Beyond & Chris Hussey for organising my workshops and for having me join you as tutor for the third time in twelve months ... wow!
Here is a sampler only of the two days (one or two are my demos).
