Lots of my teaching is about small groups , an intimate learning experience.
I get to know my students and they get to get a feel of the life and space here at the Studio.
There is a calm learning at just the right pace for each individual – I had the pleasure of this last week with a former student returning to fill in a few gaps in her knowledge.Eagerness and willingness to learn is the best thing to take to a workshops . We worked through two full days of new knowledge , concocting dyes and wool mixes . Time taken to keep notes and samples . Drop spindle mastered and a wealth of new knowledge . I look forward to the return visit to wheel spin and use the yarn for basic tapestry weaving.
My legacy is to sew as many seeds of knowledge to allow that knowledge to grow – when we stop learning we stop growing as artists and human beings .
With all the equipment set up I had a play day with some new imprinting techniques .
I never grow tired of opening up the bundles of steamed fabrics and papers .
Best thing is I am organised and packed for my Imprint taster day at Strontian on Wednesday
