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!
