Travel and Teaching – Ocean Grove to Melbourne

I went off Ocean Grove to teach Memory Vessels. Here are some pictures of the area.

A wine tasting house….clever!

One of many things in the Kyo shops.

Nice sculptures using old bits. Wheel barrows in this one.

Outside Studio54 where I taught.

Patsy’s books.

Heather’s table.

Julie’s pages.

Jo’s stitched map.

Kaye’s forest figures.

Some of their sewing gear.

Having a farewell coffee with Kerrie.

Train ride back to Melbourne.

Greeted by Borris.

My scones served to friends at “morning tea”.

Miss Fisher’s house from Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries just up the street from Anne’s.

Brunch this morning of edible crumpets and the lovely poached eggs.

And my own attempt at being a barrista by re-configuring the heart into a person/angel.

So far a really good trip. I have some new shoes, wine to take out to the Grampians, a smallish bottle of Jack Daniels in lieu of a single malt, lots of billy tea to send home, some gifts bought that will be mailed from Halls Gap, and a nice pop into Melbourne Etching Supplies for just the right thing. Anne’s hospitality makes it a wonderful and relaxing trip down under.

Until next week when I am deep into teaching the master’s class, “An Expedition that Begins with One Square Metre”.


Back Home in Australia

I am here in Australia. This is the flight from customs in Sydney to Hobart. Now I will show pictures of the white line printmaking class I taught there.

This is just a few of the work done in class. Here is my demo piece that I will be working on more my few days here at Baldessin.

And a bit of Hobart surrounds.

Some wall art outside art supply store.

View from Jude Walkers….the best hostess in Hobart.

Then a ride with Anne and Tony up to Baldessin Press taking in a few wineries.

And now I have arrived here…..the most inspiring place for a printmaker! There are people here working out ideas on the presses because it is day two of two day open press day here.

I need to do a bit of laundry before I can join them. Just thought I would catch you all up on my adventures down under so far.

Til next time.
