I still haven't started working though the studio space downstairs is getting cleared! Slowly we are settling into life at Le Triadou!
First things first. Southern lands- and exhibition showcasing the work of 5 Australian and one New Zealand artist will be shown at the Atelier of Juliette Eckel near Cologne in Germany starting in early March of this year. In conjunction with the exhibition I will also be giving workshops on 3-4 march ( a two day workshop exploring Lutradur and transfer painting/dyeing) and Saturday 6 March also exploring Lutradur.Juliette has a great space where we can work. If you are interested please contact Juliette via the link Ihave given to her website. please also take time to explore Juliette's website as she makes wonderful work with lots of printing
The above photos are of a reproduction fante cloth denoting the kings of Benin. it was hand made in benin in the traditional fante style. Fante cloths are flags made to commemorate kings and events. They ar ehand appliqued and embroidered.
I also am unable to take any more takers for the Kiss project- it has tunred into quite a substantial project and if everyone delivers we will have plenty of things to exhibit and realy can't take any more.
I am still taking registrations for my on-lino linocut courses. have just found a fabulours engraver from the eraly sixteenth century, Lucas de Leyde, in a 1966 catlogue of european engravings ( don't you love othe rpeople's bookshelves for the treasures they contain!) which has me all inspired again.
