Hurrah! and lashings of ginger beer! My first course in Australia 2012 is full - there are still places left on other courses so if you are one of my Aus followers - check out the website fibrearts.jigsy.com/fibre-arts-at-ballarat-2012.
I am so excited, particularly as this will be a new workshop combining newspaper with Vilene Spunbond and painted Bondaweb . . ooohhhHH!!!! It's going to be GORGEOUS.
old dyed newspapers layered with painted Bondaweb and gilding flake with STITCH, don't die of shock, I do get round to stitching sometimes . . . .

There are still places left on my workshop for ContextArt Forum in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains4-DAY Workshop: HOT TEXTILES – NEW SURFACES FOR STITCH (from Mon afternoon April 16th to Friday noon, April 20th 2012). Come and discover what Kim has been experimenting with in the past 2 years since she first graced Australia shores in 2010 to work for TAFTA. New, soft fairy like and jeweled surfaces can be developed by distressing Vilene Spunbond/Lutradur and layering this exciting product with Tyvek, embossing powders and Hot Spots! Using beautiful mica powders and high metallic paints we will create stunning layered surfaces on which to stitch – or not. There will be plenty of opportunity to experiment with all the products and develop several well considered samples to be finished at a later date.
