Cards and workshop

There are still a few spaces left in the Beginners Papermaking workshop that I am running for Papermakers of Victoria next week.
You can still enrol at the papermakers website.
As part of the class I'll be teaching basic recycling and will cover fibre selection, pulp making, sizing, sheet forming, pressing and drying. In addition we will emboss paper, make paper with various inclusions and do a small bit of pulp painting. Participants will come away with around 30 sheets of beautiful paper.

I have been having a lovely time lately making gelatine prints and making cards from them, I've been really happy with some of the effects I've been getting.
I have added some to my Etsy shop and there will also me some for sale at the Alcove Art Shop and Open Drawer.

Website updated

After quite a hiatus and a lot of mucking around with iprimus and dreamweaver I have finally updated my website.
Also we had the opening of the Papermakers exhibition Paper is that is on at Mont de Lancey in Wandin yesterday, it rained most of the day so not a great day for an opening however we had quite a good turn out. Last Monday I decided that my leaves would look better green so I got out the paper dyes and turned them green, I think they look much better.
