A Student's Wax Books

I love when I get to see the 
end result of a workshop
I have given

These images are all the work of Louise Plint
who hosted my Wax and Plaster Book workshop
held in Ingham last month

They very beautiful

The beginnings can be seen 
in the other two posts about this workshop
1 and 2

I am very impressed with the finished result

It is such a fun medium to work with

a bit of plaster bandage 
some milk paints
some pigments and
some wax

So far I have two workshops in this technique 
scheduled for next year

I am very much looking forward to seeing
the results from those

Teaching in Portugal

How lucky am I  that next year not only to I get to visit my Sister and Father who now live in Portugal but I also get the opportunity to teach there as well.
 I will be at the teaching at the Pink Buddha Art Studio in Lousada, near Porto, for the lovely Linda Chaves.
I am so very excited. All the fabulous details here

We plan on arriving in Barcelona at the beginning of September here I will be able to finally see the works of Gaudi, who I have long admired and then we plan on travelling up to the coast to San Sebastian. From there we hope to see as much of the Spanish north coast as possible then around the corner and down to Porto, where I will be teaching a 5 day eco-dyeing class. And then it will be down towards Lisbon for the family visit before flying back to Oz.

So if anyone has any must see ideas please let me know.

Let the planning begin. So excited

Plaster and Wax, The Results

I know you are all eager for this one
AS were my students
when they arrived fresh and eager at the start of the day
But then I gave then way to many ideas
but they came through winners in the end
I won't be naming names.
They know who they are

So now I have lots of new ideas
to play with

and soon I will be able to talk about
a Natural Dye Workshop
I am planning
for next year
in Portugal
a overseas trip is in the pipeline
oh happy days
