I'm afraid the third and final day of the Cas Holmes workshop was not a painting day so my hands remained clean throughout.
We worked assiduously on our samples. Typically I hated the first iteration of mine
It looked far too much like something - too predictable. Very unsatisfactory. And machine stitching didn't improve it much.
Open Drawer in Camberwell - an excellent venue. The work spaces (plural!) are light and big enough to fit ten students comfortably. Hosts Robyn and Kate are friendly, funny, kind and knowledgeable and, rather dangerously, there is an Aladdin's cave of a shop attached (I will share the spoils of my two trips into the shop in another post). AND there was cake. If you get the chance, I highly recommend doing a workshop there - I've already signed up for my next one.
