Everyone was bright and early for our June meeting earlier this week. First up was a very interesting demo from Alison – a wee taste of what can be done with gelli plate printing, with several of us keen to try it sometime… I know I have tried but not very successfully, with acrylic paints… it might be that with the right amount of fluidity in the paints, I might be a little more successful…
We followed the demo up with the unveiling of 17degrees of Difference challenge ,
then show and tell.
Kim had loads of Show and Tell: her SELF piece

Brenda showed us her punches and how to use them for making the dots as per previous phtot
Helen showed a small piece made for the Carte Blanche Group.
After morning tea, there was discussion regarding the hanging of our Briscape in the level 2 lift foyer at the Brisbane Square Library.
This took us through to pretty much lunch time, when we finally got down to some work…
that’s it for now!
