Members recent work

By Claire Brach:

Primrose Paper Arts has arranged quite a few events recently; the AGM (which is always a lot more than just the formalities), social days, Special Interest days and another get together held at a venue more in reach for some of our southern members who don’t get up to Primrose Park very often – if at all.

I took my camera along and recorded some of the art pieces our members have been working on.  Here is a selection of what everyone has been doing.

Peter had all his supplies (including his guillotine!) and was making books and I was collaging tissue paper to create a sheet for a new hard-cover book.

Lou and Ang were stitching with paper yarn.

Rosemary brought her embossed handmade paper, while Annette showed us her stitched pieces that will end up as book covers.  I especially liked the text hidden between the layers (close-up above).

We got the chance to flick through two of Diana’s beautiful books, and it’s not just the covers that are stunning.  Here are a few of her pages.  Mouth wateringly lovely.

Our southern Sydney get together had a group of us (under the careful guidance of Jill) making some amazing folded books and photos of those will be coming shortly.

Webmaster Note: Keep your eye on our up-coming blog posts as we are thrilled that Diana Brandt will be sharing some of her mark-making skills with us at our November Tips & Tricks day.  Details coming soon.
