Leaf printing! What fun! Alison was so kind to demonstrate to us how she does this – then a number of us went off with our leaves and paints and rollers to try it out! See a slide show of the demo on Youtube .
We had lots of exciting things to talk about during the “Meeting” and Show and Tell! AQC classes that Brenda went to in Melbourne recently, and our 2018 challenge, as well as the plans for an international challenge with Central Otago textile group COOTS (Central Otago Outside The Square) – being part of this will be so much fun! Since both groups have been in the throes of exhibition recently, we are planning ahead for later in 2019 to kick off the exhibition. Thanks to Brenda and Wendy (COOTS) for initiating and liasing!
I for one left the meeting feeling renewed and excited about the upcoming projects – it is so invigorating to learn something new, and to have fun together painting, stitching and exploring new ideas.
