"Designing with Letters" class at TAA.
I am one of the tutors at the 2013 Textile & Art Academy in June.
I'm teaching a two-day class ... and you don't need to have any previous calligraphic experience! It would be great if you were able to come ... the price for this class is cheaper if you enroll before 1 June!

DESIGNING WITH LETTERS
Dates: 25/26 June OR 27/28 June 2013
Venue: St Peters Lutheran College, Lambert Road, Indooroopilly.
Cost: $196 for the two days (residential extra)
Description: Give a new twist to your artwork! In this workshop you will be shown a range of different techniques for creating innovative designs based on letters, words, symbols or numbers. You will create several unique patterns which are then ready to use later in your future projects. You can choose whether your message is very legible or more abstract, and we will discuss how to transfer the designs into your chosen medium (applique, embroidery, clay, paper, tapestry, knitting, crochet, weaving, silk painting, etc). No previous training in calligraphy or lettering is necessary, just the desire to express yourself creatively using letterforms!

THE END OF A GREAT YEAR ...
I thoroughly enjoyed my year as the 2012 Artist-in-Residence at Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-tha Gardens.
I wrote a blog to record of my activities, projects and exhibitions. Click here if you'd like to see what I did during the year.
Many thanks to the thousands of people who visited me during the year, joined in the activities and contributed to my collaborative projects. I really apprecaited your support.
I'm still hoping to find a permanent home where the "Flowers of Friendship" hanging can be dsplayed. I'd like a venue where all the participants (and other visitors) can view it easily ... so please let me know if you have any ideas!
