Some pics of school work

Still working on the finishing off the hangings for the Kindlehill school. I am trying to also prepare for this weekend's workshops and get myself making some sculpture for an exhibition at Braemar Gallery in April. I also have a couple of dresses to finish for a fashion Parade at the  context art forum  here in the Mountains in April as well. I am going to the workshop with Anita Larkin and there may still be some vacanies so if you are nearby why not join me??

Here are some shots of the process with the gorgeous children of Kindlehill.
There is the literal pulling together of community to make these pieces but there is so much more community built in a more subtle way too. Children learn that it takes time to produce such work, persistence and co operation with friends to roll a felt. Parents work with children showing how much they value the work too. I am often asked how do you do this at home? " I can't " is the answer. I need the community to bring the work to life!!

love the orange glow here

Promise to get to the full finished pics as soon as possible.

I always amaze myself with the variation between idea an actuality. I am currently up a ladder playing with lots of small balls to see which way is the best to put together. This is one panel from the school work I did last week. I will show more when they are all complete

Dimension and texture

In preparing for this weeks residency I undertook to make a small 1.5x1m wall hanging to show some of the techniques we would be using. I loved the range of responses to the textures. Some said the dessert and others a topographical viewpoint and the ideas kept flowing. The inspiration was in fact the sea. Seaweed, urchins and rock formations.

Borrowed camera and not too familiar with it so the colour is more like the second or something in between actually. if yo are in the Netherlands this October and think you would like to learn how to do this Contact Truus  from the workshop coloum.
