Busy Times

This is the view from the tenth floor of the new Tate Modern building on the South Bank in London… it is truly amazing and you all must go .. fabuous iconic art pieces, even some textiles .. the Louise Bourgeois room is outstanding …
Now .. back to business!
Caroline Bell ran a masterclass here using Spring leaves and various mordants as well as a fructose Indigo Vat.. with great results.. she will run another masterclass next year…. meanwhile she is running an Eco stitch day next month so that students can use their beautiful cloths… she is also running another Autumn Eco 2 day class in September …
IN THE PIPELINE…. Caroline may run a 4-6 session hand stitching course in the winter, when there are no leaves about… those that know her work, do know how exquisite her hand stitching is … let me know if you are interested
Caroline has been co-organising an exhibition ‘From the Earth Textiles’ which is open for a month at the Mardlebury Gallery near Art Van Go, and also a series of workshops held at Art Van Go, see details below
I went to  the PV on Friday night and it is well worth the visit
Saw Clare Bullock up at the ‘From the Earth Textiles’ exhibition and she is really looking forward to teaching at the Granary Studio. This image shows my delightful needle case made by Clare, just to whet your appetite..
The Procion and Process courses are going apace ..
the Saturday group are hurtling towards the end of the year … only two more sessions left ….
..I am taking names now for the restart in either October or February .. two of the spaces are already gone, so, if you are interested please do not leave it too long before contacting me … I only take 4 in each group…
Also I am starting an independent study group with a couple of names already on the list, so please do get in touch if you are hoping to join this group

This month the Saturday students set up their screens ready for breakdown printing in July

they also did some Shibori ploughing with some great results

The Sunday group were monoprinting

STOP PRESS!
I am negotiating with the lovely Amanda Hislop to come and teach at the Granary Studio… I have all her details, just need to settle on which workshops and the dates.
SO … WATCH THIS SPACE!
