Too much going on with the building project to allow much time for art or sitting, but that should be no excuse for not blogging. What have I been doing?
Attended the anti-Trump demo, and broke my wooden spoon during the “Make the noise” part
Enjoyed more grids at the Manchester Art Gallery
Made journal quilts for May, June, July and August on the theme of abstracted birds: swan, heron, bittern, grebe. Hand-dyed, rust dyed and screen printed re-purposed sheet.
Went to the last art classes of the term, here we developed our drawings from here, with drawing, collage or paint
Learned to live with this
Baked sourdough bread
Made jewellery on a two day course with Penny Akester
Day 1, silver clay. A pendant cast from a conker case
Day 2, silver sheet. Earrings made to replace a loved and lost pair
Appreciated the beauty of our water lily, which did not flower last year
