FUN A DAY DUNDEE 12 FEBRUARY 2017

Big huge thanks to all of you in the Fun A Day Dundee team for all the hard work you put into this event. It was an absolute pleasure to take part.

Here are a few more photographs of the fun I had.  Enjoy!

 


FUN A DAY DUNDEE

Thanks for all the fun Dundee Fun A Day!

(It all started off on Hogmanay when somebody handed me a strange object and asked – “What can you do with this? Take it away and have a go!” So my Funaday project was finding out what I could do with a six foot shed skin from a boa constrictor!)

If you want to see what I did come along to the FunADay Exhibition this weekend.

It’s in WASP studios, Meadowmill, West Henderson Wynd, Dundee.  The opening night is on Friday 10 February from 7 – 9pm.  The Exhibition runs from 10.00am – 7.00pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Here are some photographs I took of the fun I had during the month.

 

 

 

 

 


Fun A Day Dundee 2 January 2017

Well, I’m a crochet tutor! So the first thing I saw when I looked at this shed snakeskin was a beautiful lacy crochet pattern. Don’t know quite how it would turn out or what I might use it for. Maybe give this a try out sometime and see if it can be made into a working pattern. Probably would need a more delicate name than Boa’s Belly Stitch though!

Fun A Day 1 January 2017

Last night somebody handed me an strange object (as they do on Hogmanay) and said “What could you make from this?  Take it away and see what you can do with it.”

So my Fun A day project is going to be – working out what I can do with the shed skin from a six foot boa constrictor.

First take photographs of it in all it’s complex beauty. Here are four of them.

I really like this idea – creating just for the fun of it. 

Who knows where it might lead 🙂

Puzzles and frustrations of a blogging beginner

OK – After what seems like forever, I am still learning how to blog.  Yesterday I learned that galleries don’t seem to work very well.  The pictures looked small and uninteresting and didn’t display at all in facebook.  Just a big blank space – which did have a link to the gallery page, but it took ages to load.    Now I understand why people post one photograph at  time.  So, please be patient with me as I learn.

 


The exhibition has begun!!  Mavericks Art Craft​ – which includes my sweet self – have a full exhibition of work for sale at Halllgreen Castle, Inverbervie until 21 September. All part of North East Open Studios (NEOS)​ Do come along and see!

I had fun with this  – wish I had taken a photograph of the leaf itself as followed a pencil sketch of a real one.

I have just spent two weeks recharging my batteries

I have just spent two weeks recharging my batteries and getting inspired down in the Borders amongst some beautiful flowers and greenery.  Now have the basis for a new series of work, good timing with NEOS just round the corner.  Watch this space!!
