Oh Edel, I'd love that SO much.  An excuse to visit Ireland with art as an added bonus??!!

Wulf, I posted a link to details up there in my last post... It's the second annual gathering for the sites associated with Art Trader Magazine (sites that are primarily for ATC swaps and trading but do lots of other stuff too).  There's lots of workshops and a 24-hour art room..  I'm doing a workshop on mod podge silkscreening and have been convinced to do a demo on creating "weird" art.. LOL

So... swim on over! Wink

or you can all come and visit me here in Ireland, come on a crafty retreat, bring minimal clothing and fill up the rest of the space with craft supplies, that plus my stash mean that we can craft all day, i am a good cook, so we can eat and drink cocktails all evening (i  believe lovesclutter makes a mean cocktail!)

so who's coming??

Let me get on with getting that passport. I should have vac at the end of the year and by then hopefully I will have quit my smoking habit. I need to do this soon. LOL

I used to make a mean cocktail, you are correct. But haven't bartended in years. Cool

I agree about carding, if they can have a board, why not shrines?HuhHuh??

Looked at a casting on video this morning to try to get at least a small panel of knit out, but I'm a crocheter, and I guess I would be doing this backwards.

I don't have an embroidery machine so I will tackle this board in this manner.

Edelc--I was going to mention to you that I pulled out the brocade dining chair covers that were to be sent to the charity store...ha ha--I was asked to make a coat for a friend for the Renn Faire! I looks as if I might have enough (8 chairs worth), but they will have to be pieced together...it was suggested to me that I use some trim to cover the seams but it seems a bit patchworky to me to do that...as I am not any sort of expert (this will be my first costume!)...I was wondering if you had any suggestions!

ohthemuppet!! how exciting--is this the modge podge silkscreening that bethieb was refering us to?  I am going to try it for the silkscreening board!  

I know that plenty of shrines have been made and posted--I believe it is categorized as altered works...such a beautiful piece...wow--24 inches is fairly large

I have an embroidery machine but would prefer to do something like that!! It was awesome....thanks for the link!

alwaysinmyroom I wouldn't bother with trim, match the patterns as best you can, we are far more extravagant with fabric than they used to be in medieval times, when fabric was narrower and infinitely more precious, so clothing made of pieces panels would have been common...wasnt there a bit in that laura ingles book, little house in the big woods, where one of her aunties made a dress and there wasnt enough fabric for one sleeve, so she pieces 20 scraps together to make the sleeve...it would have been the same...so a pieced garment is much more historically accurate!!

I also did a double take when I saw the carding board, it is an odd one, but perhaps there is a lot more to it than I know about. It has been nagging away at the back of my mind, wondering what else I could card, apart from sheeps wool. I know that I could use nettle stalks, treat them to get out the fibres and card the remainder...then spin it and ....arrgh...knit it into something...but that seems like a whole lot of work...what else can we card?...hair?? (make hair shirts..very medieval!)

lovesclutter..honey, once a cocktail maker, always a cocktail maker!

themuppet. your class sounds fabulous, I really wish I could go.

I had actually read somewhere around here that you can spin cotton balls... so I think I will be going out to get a large bag of those to try to card and then spin... I just need to read up a bit more on the whole carding process...

Sorry, I was speedreading and missed the link to the Arttrader site. Can't find any information about costs, etc. but I'm sure it'll appear eventually. June is already overbooked for me, but it is only in Rochester.

That's my plan too.  As soon as I get used to the notion of sewing without using either a presser foot of any kind or the feed dogs to pull my fabric through.  Youtube has some great free motion vids I have been stalking!

Spinning cotton balls might be my answer too!  I am off to google that and see if it's worth the time I'm imagining it will take...

I got a small start on my scrapbooking project but I still can't figure out what pics to use...sigh.

I am dreading the glass board.  I am not very good at etching or drawing or anything like that. 

I'm working my way through this thread, considering joining but had to pop in to encourage everyone who is spooked by glass.  Here's the EASIEST and coolest project and you probably have all (or most) of the supplies!

Mosiac Trivet/Hot Plate

Supplies
1.  Piece of wood - you can buy a piece with finished edges at a craft store or use any stray piece of wood you have around. It should be big enough to put a hot pot or pan on.

2. cheap craft store acrylic paint

3. white craft glue

4. clear glass from a broken picture frame or window you can also buy window pane glass cheap at a hardware store.

How to
Step1 - paint wood do any kind of cool pattern I like lots of color and abstract patterns but anything works

Step 2 - let dry completely

step 3 - Seal with a thin layer of white glue or modge podge

Step 4 - let dry completely

step 5 - Break glass (put glass between two towels - hammer don't pulverize you want glueable pieces

Step 6 - glue clear glass pieces all over the sealed painted pattern

Let dry and hang as art or use in your kitchen as a hot plate/trivet

Happy glass breaking!!!  Grin


OK... back to reading this thread.... the sewing scares me!
