The hall where the class was held, in the Museum grounds where old historical buildings are on display.
I'd love this hall in my back yard.
Some of the ladies having a break, you can't lose your face mask if you wear it as a party hat. Morning tea and lunch were wonderful, thankyou everyone.
At some stage there was a cyclone in the building, must have been, surely we couldnt have made this mess.
We had plenty of room to spread out and get creative, there was a riot of colourful fabric produced and lots of projects planned as the colours were produced.

I shrunk the star to make it small enough to put it in place of what should have been a plain square.
The 1st border is the centre of the star and the long points.The outer border is the short points of the star.
I like the way the centre looks crooked, its an optical illusion because of the long points in the border.
Lime Green and Orange are my favourite colours at the moment.

This piece was made using fabric I didn't like.
The background was a practice piece that I'd painted and the browns are a colour scheme I don't tend to use.
Interesting that I really like this piece and don't mind the colours.
The background was heavily stitched so the fabric is no longer the focus.
The background of this piece began with dividing the paper then making the piece up with fusible webbing.
The sun is shine down on the earth, there is a river flowing through the piece and trees atop the sun.
I'm drawing this up so I can make it larger. Perhaps an environmental piece to show concern for whats happening to our planet, both locally and globally.
May need a little reworking.
Playing with colours
this is the first exercise in dividing an A4 sheet of paper. This is something I did in beginning art class, where we then had to paint the shapes that were made after the drawing. I drew circles and shapes over the the piece and made this out of fabric. I think my art teacher would like this.
