Right. Interview over. Now to get back to workshop planning, show work, Christmas show work and Craft Fair stuff.
Workshop Planning – to have finished by this weekend, the write-ups for the fabric painting workshop and the landscape quilting workshop. Included in these write-ups will be:
- materials provided by me list
- materials for participants to bring list (mandatory and optional categories)
- aims and goals of the workshop
- any relevant preparation notes (i.e. wear old clothes when painting, think about what landscapes you might wish to paint fabric for, think about landscapes you would like to render in fabric, etc.)
- contact information for further questions
- a photo or two?
- what you will get out of the workshop, both physically and artistically
I have some of it done, I just need to hammer out the stuff to bring and make sure I’m not forgetting anything. I also need to clarify in my own mind exactly how I’m going to structure the landscape quilting workshop, as there are two or three ways that it could go.
Show Work – working on the Foundations piece. Have the background layout mostly done.
Also need to start work on another piece real soon-like.
Christmas Show work – Comfort and Joy Show. Deadline for intent to enter: October 20. Deadline for submissions: November 14. My own arbitrary dealine for intent is by the end of this weekend and my self-imposed deadline for completion is mid-October, mainly because I know what I’m going to do and have already started fleshing out the ideas.
It’s going to be a set of three nesting boxes, with the outer one being the holder of a nativity scene and the inner -most one simply a decorated box holding the components. The middle box is still under debate. I might make it an outbuilding to the main scene or have it be totally different – a contemporary Christmas scene inside with St. John’s houses outside. Not entire sure on this yet! But work on the outer-most one has started. Pictures to be provided as soon as I have anything worth photographing!
Craft Fair – ongoing. Lots of small stuff to be completed around other things. Also, need to get Standards write-up done for bell ornaments and spider webs. Need to finish spiderweb prototype and complete spider!
Lots to be done….. just need time to do it!
