Having a lovely time in the studio playing.The secret to studio success is to make time for your own work but more importantly to take time out to quieten your mind and care for your inner life. Meditation and yoga each morning with my lovely hubby has been a beautiful start to the year.Feeling blessed and very creative is a good combination! Below is some design work from the studio this week.

Artist’s Lens’ workshops for her Homage to the
Seed Project launched in 2010.

participants through 3 DAYS of Visual
experimentation with a lively SEED focus, taking
the opportunity to discover a diversity of local and
regional species in particular.
Gestural drawing, mark-making, layering, patterning
& painting will provide exciting ways to celebrate
the seeds of this region to arrive at the engaging
designs ready to apply to a piece of handmade felt.
Day 3: You can continue your paper based design
work with Sophie or bring a textile/stitch element
into your work (bring your textile materials with
you!) , or with Wendy as felt guide create a piece of
felt reflecting the wonders of our local Biodiversity
