Time has rushed around and it is fast approaching the time of the Gloucester Arts & Crafts Summer School again. This is the 7th year I have a workshop at this event ... as long, that is, as I get enough students. It is always a nail-biting time waiting to hear if the workshop has been booked by enough people to make it viable for the organisers to run.
I believe there are still some spaces on my course, but I need a few more to reach that magical 'ok to run' number. So if you or anybody you know, would like to try your hand at batik and have a fun week in my class learning something new or playing with a medium you already know, please contact the organiser. This link takes you to their website page where you can view details of all the courses available (including mine of course) and the contact details if you should wish to book.
The designs you do on my workshop/course you keep, of course, and some have gone on to make their designs into something decorative or practical like cushion covers, lamp shades and shoe bags. Alternatively you can turn them into wall hangings or put them in a frame to hang on the wall.
It is a great week to meet with like minded people interested in art and crafts, with lovely lunches and a great atmosphere.
If you are considering joining me this year at Summer School to play with batik... I hope to see you soon.
Here are some photo's from previous workshops showing some of the work done by the students.
