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:
This bird card was made by Dorothy R who was busy splashing paint, stamping, stitching and generally manipulating paper.
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 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.
Last Saturday everyone tried their hand at bookbinding. Doreen G brought in some books she’d made for inspiration – look at this beauty.
Pat B used handmade hearts paper for her book.
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.
Meanwhile Fran upcycled a flier from a newspaper into an arty notebook.
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!
