A wonderful day learning something new

Today has been spent at the lovely Hope and Elvis studios taking part in a workshop from the one and only Mrs Bertimus.  I can't begin to tell you how much fun I've had; not only escaping from being mum for most of the day, but also learning a new technique (printing with a gelli plate) among good company and eating more cake than is good for me.


Mrs B is such a lovely tutor, very generous with sharing her techniques, equipment and ideas and hell bent on feeding us all cake!


This is some of her beautiful work:




and these are some shots of the lovely studio of Hope and Elvis:




and finally, some of what I made today:





My gelli plate is already on order! I can't wait to try it out on textiles and collages.
