Weekend Wonderfuls 1

 

The Creative Group meets on the first Saturday of every month from 10.00 – 2.30 p.m. to play with fibre. For the last couple of months they’ve been experimenting with paper – mainly making cards and book binding.

Here are some of the results:

Cards

Dorothy Rudling bird card

This bird card was made by Dorothy R who was busy splashing paint, stamping, stitching and generally manipulating paper.

Pat Bootland card green pouch and sishas

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of Pat B’s card with this pouch of crocheted sishas. They add a real pop of colour.

Dimity family hstory card

Dimity was experimenting with making a card that included a photo of her mum – her work really sparked some ideas for presenting family history photos in a fresh and relevant way.

Bookbinding

Doreen Grey purple flowers notebook

Last Saturday everyone tried their hand at bookbinding. Doreen G brought in some books she’d made for inspiration – look at this beauty.

Pat Bootland Heart notebook

Pat B used handmade hearts paper for her book.

Glendas book with green leaf

At one point Glenda was about to give up on the whole process but kept at it…..and look what she produced! The leaf detail is really cool.

Fran Novitski Monet notebook

Meanwhile Fran upcycled a flier from a newspaper into an arty notebook.

Next Meeting

The next get together of the Creative Group will be on 5 October and the business will be entrapment. This is putting found objects between layers of fabric. The possibilities will only be limited by your imagination.

Come and join in the fun!
