Recycled Stuff, Art Quilt Workshop

In no particular order, here are a few of the photos I took yesterday during the Arty Farty Workshop in My Very Own Classroom. 
Teacher for the day was the very lovely and, evidently inspiring, Jane Lockley

Students only needed a few inspirational words... and they all set to... 
Paint this, melt that... stick this... how about covering it with that... try a different colour... oooo what's that in your box?

Borrow a bit of this... borrow a piece of that... I love your this and that... take it please... I have loads... Share mine, take a snip of hers... the most amazing collection of 'stuff', from sweety papers to sheet music, a feather or two and beads galore.... monkey stamps, plaited threads...

There was lace to be painted... lace by the metre, lace from sexy knickers... oh the memories... geoff announced he might be getting a little embarrassed! 
Stitching with thin thread, thick thread, shiny thread, metallic thread... straight stitch, zig-zag stitch

variegated thread .... hand stitch... Add a few dried flowers, pressed flowers, buttons... why stop at flowers? dried fruit, fruit sacks, little people, buttons, beads and sequins...  They had so much fun!

Our next arty workshop will be using felts and stamps and walnut inks and more pretty threads, all needed to make little samples like these... oh boy Miss Jane is a great teacher isn't she!
