Monster Bell Balls

Here is an example of the balls we will be making this morning and afternoon at the Benalla Art Gallery. It is part of the Summer Art Programme. It should be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see all the little monsters that we make.

Just Had To Do Some Eco Dyeing!

The time was right and I had a a few days to dye some test fabrics, scarves and tops. I had an avocado dye pot, a walnut dye pot as well as a natural dye pot with a mixture of natural indigo, pomegranate and alkanet. All results were good. It’s like Christmas when you eco dye, I’m addicted to it!

Here are a few of my results.

Mandala Workshop

I had a great opportunity to attend a Victorian Feltmakers mandala workshop with a well known feltmaker from WA, Martien Van Zuilen last weekend.

We had 3 days of quiet stitching and energetic feltmaking.
