Thistledown

Went down to Surbition and made paper with Thistledown and Pine needles............. look quite good..... really like the soft look of the silky thistledown ----- devised a way to disperse them - so they don't just float to the surface. Will add a photo tomorrow!

Playing....

After the Artsmart show at Chelsea College of Art I felt like I need to get back to creating ideas with different layers of different pigmented pulps....... cotton, abaca and gampi fibers.
Yesterday I handed in my notice of intent to leave my studio...... a sad day - but in these economically trying times it seems the best thing to do.......
I think I will sign up for the papermaking course at Morley College. Then I can have a definate one day a week in a papermaking studio!! Also, it will help the course to fill up!

Had a great day last Friday when I taught a mini book structures with handmade papers at Morley College. Looks like I will participate in their Christmas Fair!!
