Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

Bookings NOW open at this table...


I have spent nights lying in bed over the years yearning about the cafe I would open. I practiced on everyone I knew...especially in my Melbourne years where quality food was both abundant and affordable through brilliant markets.

Instead ... now I have tables pushed together in my studio, waiting for any of you who can come and join workshops, or events, or just share a coffee.

TWO SPACES LEFT THIS SUNDAY.... PLUS MONDAY'S 5 WEEK COURSE HAS ONE SEAT STILL AVAILABLE.

SO of course I cooked my class a delicious soup last sunday .... the recipe found through a heavenly blogger at My New Roots hanging out in Denmark these days. Maybe I'll be too busy to make the recipes of my dreams but I will always search out good artisan bread and have delicious fresh things on hand for my Homage to the seed workshops.

Go over to the post I just wrote for a longer story.... and see what friend Marilena brought me for a belated birthday visit... might have to make one of her recipes and try out one of her spice mixes on a recipe for the class this sunday. Another friend Karen popped in the previous week with treats that I forgot to photograph... spoilt I was!



Because Wendy, who's hand this is below, saw my Dorothy Caldwell Post about the May workshop I attended she asked to make  a book in the afternoon at Sunday's workshop. Whilst others keep painting and printing and testing ideas Wendy prepared the large watercolour paper  for the book she made to take home and work on. SHe is currently studying art and has been pursing all kinds of thingS in that context... so it is sure to be used!

As a lover of artists books I was totally up for this afternoon extension. Workshopers are asked to bring visual diaries to work in anyway! I like to promote ongoing work for everyone...not just those who are dedicated already...and a visual journal is therefore crucial!


More images soon.. have been so busy painting...but not taking shots!

Have a great weekend everyone!

And you cook for your class?! Man I wish I was closer!!!
Looking forward for more photos!

Sophie Munns said...

Cant believe it Nathalie... got into class today and asked permission to take photos and promptly forgot to even get the camera out. The whole day was like a wonderful long conversation with paints and paper and lunch and all folding in to the flow of time ... great memories...but sadly no photos... what was I thinking?

If you were coming to lunch I'd have to polish up my skills or ask you to bake a treat for us!

Sophie Munns said...

Hi SHell,

I would gladly bake something!

If you had too much of a good time to take out the camera, it's because it didn't need it. The memories will be cherished through the images that were created by you and your class.

Sophie Munns said...

That's an offer i am sad to not be able to take you up on that Nathalie!
I did it again last night ...first night of the 5 week journaling course I've called 'Weaving word and image'
WE had soup, bread and wine (for the first night only) whilst getting to know each other.
In no time at all we were packing up ... 3 hours had slipped by... so no photos!
I guess we are making the memories as you say!
