This last year has been a strange one for me Eastwise as I have been taking a sabbatical from the group's activities. Due to family circumstances I felt I needed to concentrate on my family at this time.
However this doesn't mean that I have not been doing any textile work, in fact I have been very busy. Last year I did the 1 day a month Wet 'n Wild course with Committed to Cloth down near Reigate with Leslie Morgan and Claire Benn which was hugely enjoyable if very tiring. the results of which will show in my work in the future. The opportunity to learn so much about all the dyeing, printing and transfer techniques has been a real eye-opener. So, as they say 'watch this space'.
Also last month I took an online sketchbook design course with Dionne Swift which I would highly recommend, great fun and done on a small scale so easy to complete in the allotted week.
