End of January already!

How can we be at the end of January, it feels as though we have only just put the Xmas decs away … February sees the start of the new years’ classes so things are revving up now, my Creative Textiles and Procion Printing long courses are starting again this week, as is Mel’s life drawing … Amanda Hislop returns to the Granary to teach her ‘Imagined Seascapes’ too…

Caroline Bell is offering a brand new class titled ‘Natural dyeing ‘ in response to requests from preious students .. she has spaces on this, so if you are interested in dyeing rather than printing, then come along to try it out ..two tuesdays 13 & 20 Feb, more details in the classes section of this website, it is £100 for the two days, all dyes included.. should be a great couple of days, let me know if you are interested.

The life drawing is roughly once a month and although we have a nucleus of regular students there are often the odd space so if you wish to go on that email list offering these spaces, please contact me..

thats it for now, more things coming up in March, will let you know at the end of feb

get creative

spaces on upcoming classes

We have a couple of spaces on two of our upcoming classes….

The excellent Caroline Bell has a couple of spaces on her Autumn Eco printing class which is running on two consecutive Tuesdays, 10&17 October…this is a fun class which results in a tremendous variety of colours and shapes on paper and fabrics, every class that Caroline teaches varies according to what we can find around the village, what the weather is, how advanced each season is etc …

I have two names in my open studios book who are interested in Caroline’s classes but sadly they didnt leave their email addresses or phone numbers, which is a shame…

Secondly, the amazing Clare Bullock is running ‘the Versatility of Felt’ on Fri/Sat 27 and 38 October also has a couple of spaces, she is a fun tutor who has a really sensitive affinity for felt, no lumpy dog blankets here, only very fine beautiful surfaces ..

Both these classes are two days each running from 10.00-16.00 and cost £90 for the two days. tea, coffee and biscuits are available all day but you will need to bring your own lunch…. there are three bed and breakfasts available in the village and there are wonderful walks for partners if they wish to come too. Owslebury is a pretty village with a lovely pub…

Hope to see you here…

We are having lots of fun this week at the Granary Studio. It is open studios and we have had lots of lovely visitors ..

I am in the studio printing the panels for the Romsey Abbey exhibition in October, Caroline is eco-printing in the gazebo outside, lynn and Consuelo are stitching and wrapping, so, there is lots to see and people to talk to…
