- Blue,Green Quillo
Today I finished the quillo for the pattern instructions for download which will be available soon.
I am also teaching a quillo course in the Autumn, so will be using this quillo as a demo.
I love the colours of this ‘quilt that folds into a cushion’.
That is why it is called a ‘Quillo’.
I have used my own dyed fabrics and purchased materials.

- Daisy Collagraph
The new printing press has arrived @The Gallery.
Today I set the press up ready for printing and I had fun making a collagraph.
I like to make the collagraph plates as good as the prints.
I will be teaching a printing course called ‘Printing Little Gems’,
in September @ The Gallery.

‘Holiday in a Box’
The children got to make their box,paint,decorate it and put dreams
and ideas of holidays they would like to go on in the future.
Lots of paint,glitter,laughter and food!
Here you can see they really enjoyed what they had made.
