Nor is editing, but I am sure anyone who has been reading my blog has already figured that out.
Ok so I’ve been a little late to the IBW project year but have until Feb to get my flowers done so it is ok. I also know a little bit about what might be happening for next years which is exciting, i’ll be all over it. Anyway I’ve only made the two flowers so far but will have about ten or so done to send off before the deadline.
The All Colours project this year and the black and white project last year as well as next years project have (and will be) lead by Professor Sam Norgard of Savannah college of art and design, USA. Its amazing to be apart of an international group making an art work.
Mackay had its own group art work Healthy Planet, created by the plastic boutique that is now being displayed in Canelands. I didn’t
The Mackay Art Society INC also has an exhibition on at the moment that I’ll make my way to see and so does one of the high schools at the jubilee community center.
Eungella had its first (hopefully annual) Ancient Arts & Craft Fayre, which one of my aunts and I went to visit. We both got Jams and I brought a wonderful (and expensive) cream. There were workshops, on felting, basket weaving and metal work that we saw and there was also a viking camp set up by an historical group which was really cool. Hopefully next year they lure up a hot coffee van and a few more art stalls but over all it was fab.
I didn’t make it to this week AWC class as I had my nephews (my best friend’s son) first birthday party to go to.
In beading news I’ve been adding to my shapes series again, only small shapes as I am running out of beads, but they are ones I’ve been meaning to make for a while. There will be a few more to come until I run out of the silver I use and then I will just use up the yellow and black making parts until I get more beads and can make bigger shapes again.
I did make some 2d shapes for the series by joining two of the same shapes together (to pull them into shape as the square, pentagon and rectangle warp when left to their own devices) in the same way that I joined the 3d shapes.
I am also working on another cube project which I mentioned in my last post. You can see it here taking shape along with another finished square that I am using for an experiment. I’ll update you about that when I get around to doing the experimental part later.
um other than that I don’t have much to say so I think I will get a move on with my bead work so I have more interesting things to talk about next time. Lou
