The Making Framework

Hi Everyone
The Making Framework has another workshop today and we will concentrate on all things Christmas. We started some Chritstmas Trees last time - using air dry clay and today we will aim to develop these trees with painting, waxing, felting and beading techniques. Here are a few of the samples and the e-poster for the workshop - showing the range of work involved.

                                


                               

I've also developed the spiral beaded charm which I mentioned last time :

                               

The Tree Charms are seen hanging on a curly willow display tree (above). More on that next time. I'm also hoping we may be able to develop a few  more beaded trees next time. We may also get into some card making (prep.) by making  felted embellishments today.
These little Christmas projects are bringing together lots of materials and techniques from previous sessions and everyone is showing real skill and imagination in applying their ideas.
I will share the results of the workshop next time.

Thanks for reading.
