I had a wonderful time in Melbourne teaching for Sue and Carly. The first course was “Dancing in the Breeze” and the students impressive work is on my website courses page. The time with them seemed to fly by so quickly and then I was on my way to the next location, Tasmania
It was great to fly over to Tasmania and see the familiar green fields and Western Tiers. I have 12 days here in total, teaching 2 courses for Cindy in Deloraine at the Elemental Artspace Gallery. I have had some spare time to explore and see more of this beautiful state.
So soon it’s back to Melbourne for the last weekend in November for my final course of the trip!
The first leg of my trip is coming to close. Its been a terrific time for me. A very busy 12 days, with 3 courses, all in different locations. The first course was in Perth at the Bernina Shop in Cannington then I broke up my stay in Perth with a midweek trip down to Margaret River.
It is a beautiful part of WA and my hosts Helen and Maureen took great care of me, showing me some great places to get a flavour of the area. The coastline at Redgate Bay, Swallows Welcome Winery, where I had the pleasure of meeting watercolour artist Pat Negus and the Margaret River Silk Road, where they produce mulberry trees and therefore silk worms all year round.
I headed back to Perth, staying again with my host Jill, for the last weekend where I taught the WA Embroiderers Guild at their headquarters in the city. Its been a super time meeting all these enthusiastic students and sharing my passion for textiles with them.
I saw the sun go down over the Indian Ocean and my last day was spent looking around Perth at the Jacaranda trees and black swans on the Swan River! Its a beautiful place. Thanks to Jill and Diane for a special day
Next stop Melbourne!
