Well the secret's out, and the full glory of what is being worked on on our Elements weekend is revealed!
Each tutor worked on a different theme and colourway for their sample piece, and the results were gorgeous . I focused on flowers and text, and Helen took a teenage girl theme for her daughter (both above). Becca, Paddy's niece who runs a quilt shop in Dorset, worked with the house images from Tanda stamps.
Neet created a gorgeous time themed piece using images by Paper Artsy, and Kay's box features Paper Artsy's Hot Picks.
Classes started on the dot of 9am with Paddy instructing everyone on how to colour their wooden boxes. It was so lovely to see some very different colour combinations coming through.
We then broke up into smaller groups and during this time, I taught my perspex element...
[This is Lou's piece. It's just drying here which is why the text is in reverse! I love her shading from green to yellow, which is echoed on her box]
... Neet her clay pieces...
[These are so fab to make, and appeal to my love of collage and 'shinies' :)]
... and Becca the fabric element. I love the fabric pieces on my box :)
More classes meant people created a tree from wire with Paddy, and created a box of hidden treasure (creating a box within a box) with Helen. Tomorrow brings the metal element with Paddy, and Kay's wooden element.
