Last weekend I had the pleasure of running workshops in Geraldton with Tara, Suzanne & Susannah (from 2Wards Polymer Clay)... it was a fabulous weekend of fun, food, wine & creativity!!! The workshop location on Suzanne & Peter's farm at Yetna was superb and their hospitality was incredible... I'm returning this weekend to conduct Powertex & Mixed Media on Saturday & Powerprint & Mixed Media on Sunday... please contact me if you would like to attend. Pictured below are some of the artworks...
Renee & I had the pleasure of attending the opening of "Uncorked", an exhibition of artworks by Honor Lovis, Mary Crawford & Roger Reading @ Houghtons Winery last weekend. If you get a chance go along & have a look before it finishes... the diversity and colour is incredible... and Honor Lovis has created some awesome artworks with Powertex... you won't be disappointed! Open daily 10am-4pm until 30th September. Check it out!!!
Kerin Thorne was the lucky winner of our $250 Prize draw at the WA Craft Show... She first came across Powertex in May at the Perth Craft & Quilt Fair... then she came to a Fairy Workshop at Powertex Australia & following this, organised an Arty Party with some friends... This is the first time someone has won the draw that has been to my workshops... which is fabulous! Kerin was keen to put the prize towards workshops (instead of products) and is now a Certified Powertex Trainer... so watch this space as she'll be running Powertex workshops in the Thornlie area soon!
Do you ever have days that you've set aside as an 'art day' and you find it difficult to get started??? Why not begin the day with something easy... kick start your art day with a photo transfer using Powerprint, the versatile photo transfer medium from Powertex! It's easy to do... just prepare your photos (laser print or photocopy) and surfaces the day before so that you can walk into the studio & just begin... print onto any surface including fabric, canvas, metal, etc... and be astounded by the quality of the print!!! Need a demonstration... click here... Have fun...it's awesome!!!
