Ever since we gave up ‘real’ work and turned to our efforts to artistic output, we’ve been sharing a studio.

Julie uses the wonderful natural light for her photography. She produces ‘flat-lay’ and still-life pictures. She also finds the peace great for her study of Colour Therapy.

I use the space for pen and brush work, or writing. Occasionally we have to change places, or join forces if an extra pair of hands is needed – usually to hold a reflector, or support a backdrop. It is good to have, on hand, a second opinion that you trust. Especially when deadlines are closing in.

Sometimes it gets a bit crowded, so that’s the time to go to the kitchen and make a cuppa.

So here is a snapshot of our multi-functional space – gotta be better than working for a living!

The annual BADFA convention is getting closer!

Shara Reiner is our guest artist this year, and her Sunday class is a Christmas hanging. This may sound like a seasonal execution, but it is a set of boards to be used as a hanging display – at Christmas, of course.

There is nowhere that provides the boards, so I have been making sets for those who are attending that class.

Here is a picture of Shara’s completed project so that you can see what we’ll be aiming for.

Get your order in soon – no last minute dot coms!

Kim’s Saturday session

For full details and to book your place go to the BADFA blog site!

For the first time, I’ll be teaching at the Convention. Our main event is international visitor, Peggy Harris from Nashville, TN, but we were asked to cater for a broader skills base, so Suz Humphreys and I will be adding a little seasoning to the mix.

Suz is doing two half day sessions on Friday (31 March), starting with her Peacock Feather in the morning, and a FolkIt piece in the afternoon.

I am running an all day session on Saturday (1 April – April Fools’ Day – is that significant?). It will be multi-media work on an art journal, using the DecoArt Media range, with lots of ‘whatever’ – choose your finish; Steampunk or Steampink – Industrial grunge or Girly Goth.

If I’m really lucky I’ll get to flex my traditional brush-strokes muscles on Sunday (2 April) and lead a ‘Ribbon and Daisies’ class, too!
