Another event organised to accompany the Bellamys at Five exhibition was long stitch bookbinding tutored by Lynn Taylor. The first class was at the Gallery yesterday afternoon. Lynn sent me this photo of the completed works.
This afternoon I was minding the Gallery and it was four hours of fun! Lynn was tutoring her second long stitch bookbinding class. She has great skills as a teacher and a terrific sense of humour. Everyone was very relaxed and went at their own pace. Pauline popped in with a cake and Lynn had made a yummy chocolate brownie so the girls stopped for a very enjoyable sustenance break. I was multitasking – providing weather updates, taking photos and standing on the press to aid the flattening process!
Enjoy the photos below.
The view this afternoon from the Gallery. Sand was blowing across the road from the beach, a street sign blew down the road just missing a car, and the wind was whipping everything in sight. The cafe next door brought in their outdoor pots and furniture before they all ended up in the harbour.
I’ve got a work day tomorrow so Pauline and John are minding the exhibition. I’ll still post a couple of exhibition works here tomorrow evening though so call in for a look-see. I’ll be back down at the Gallery on Thursday afternoon. Do call in. We love to see people, even if you’re not in a purchasing frame of mind!
Before I go, huge thanks to Lynn. She is a superb teacher. If you’d like to attend one of her workshops let me know and I’ll pass on your details. She is toying with the idea of having another one in October but that depends on her time and the number of people interested. Lynn’s wonderful critters having been selling so quickly I begged for more please. She managed to find the time to create another three. The ballerina has already sold but the other two were still for sale when I left tonight.
