Gathering... Creating

Recently I went to the Gather :: Create workshop organised by Ellie at Petalplum and Leah 
from Sang the Bird. What a buzzing day of fabulous creativity! 

The morning session was entitled Unfurl by Alex Falkiner where we learned how to make 
rope from fabric scraps.

What an incredible process this is! So simple and yet with such possibilities for 
experimentation and application. My example isn't that amazing, but there were some 
fabulous pieces created on the day below :)

The afternoon session, Poetic Collage, was held by Karina Sharpe. Here we were 
encouraged to combine disparate images to tell a story. My addition to this amazingly 
talented group was a bit so-so as well, but I was determined not to get stuck on some kind 
of perfectionist loop and to just let myself experiment... if that makes sense ;) 

This is my piece where I was thinking about dementia...

So good to learn new methods and process... clearing the mind and opening it to new things 
at the same time :) Thanks so much to everyone involved. x
