Perth Classes

Well what can I say? Another wonderful weekend with old friends (not age wise LOL) and meeting new friends.

Here is a picture of me flying over Miners Rest (my home) on the way to sunny Perth.

The lovely and very talented Kelsey O'Mullane, was my hostess with the mostess. I stayed with Kelsey over the 4 days. She waited on me hand and foot, also helping me in class. She was my right arm man/women. Thanks so much my "M"

I know not your typical class shot, but I was knackered. The girls were all so lovely, I can't thank them enough. They were keen as mustard which I love. I love to see people who are willing to try new things, and the look in there eyes when they ignite a new passion.

Saturday's class was the swallow book using my new frames.

Here is Chris's book that she completed. It was just so beautiful. Everyone has their own spin on their work which I love.
This was a very long..... long day class.
Thanks for hanging in there girls I hope it was all worth it.

Scraptivate: what a great shop! I really mean it, the selection of goodies were out of this world.
Here is Natalie on the right who owns the shop and the lovely Megan who works there as well.
These two were trouble LOL.

More happy smiling faces, the cheques in the mail girls thanks for looking like you're having fun LOL

Mel let loose with a dremel. You go girl!

More tool action, keep drilling Karen, you will get there girl.

The etching class was awesome, my new passion. It's very addictive.
The girls were all wonderful, some using tools for the first time.

Hey Gen! Lovely to catch up with you again.

It was so wonderful to catch up with dear friends. JVO and I have known each other for more years than we care to remember. I fly all the way across the country, she hears I'm coming, and she flies to Canberra to teach LOL. We caught up on Tuesday though. Hoorah!
Hi to Chris Atkins! She came and took me shoppin, and I got to see her awesome studio. Chris is a very talented textile artist. Her work is to die for.
And Hello to Ms Dawnie! It was so great to have time with you .
Thanks girls! I had a ball in Perth.

I should have been there! I would love to meet Kelsey, and JVO and you!!!! What a great time we would have had!

I've said before, I think I was an Australian in a previous life...or I should have been one now!

Glad everyone had a great time. It looks like so much fun. That look in someones eyes makes it all worthwhile...I know what you mean.

Be well and safe travels.

Haha, I love the group photo with you lying across the knees of your students, all you need is a pillow and blanket and you'd be set!
The work that your students created is fantastic, the pendants and the books are very beautiful, each one is unique.

How's that troublesome back of yours? I hope that it isn't giving you too much pain.

I had the best time over the weekend. I have finished my book now so will take some photos and send you them. Loved Sunday's atmosphere too. It was so different to Saturday. I'll put my hands up to another class with you for sure when you come back. Kelsey can also give you my feedback. Big Mwah to you...oh my verification word is rather cute too....mousneer LOL

Eva said...

Jen ... I want your 'job' - travel, create art, meet lovely people. Shame I don't have YOUR talent ... lol.

Glad you got to catch up with familiar faces and thanks for passing on my regards too!

Genevieve said...

I think an art camp with you, JVO, Kelsey and a few others might have to happen in WA sometime next year! What a blast that would be....maybe I'll set it up? Great to do a class of yours - your such a hoot! I used to have stickers I gave to friends that said "Your twisted, perverted and sick, just what I like in a person!' I think I'm gonna have to make up some more.

Wished I lived closer, Jen, so I could attend one of your classes. It looks as though you all had a great time! Love your book with the secret stored inside.
