May Virtual Social Day

Still being unable to meet at our venue we held our second virtual social day on Monday. Here’s what some of our members have been doing.

Dinah

Another virtual social day and I have to decide what to do.  I thought I had better make some cards as our exhibition is only about ten weeks away now.  So I pulled out my Gelli plate and my acrylics and started printing.  I used stencils and handmade paper and commercial acrylic paper.
It was fun but I missed chatting and catching up with other members.

Cecelia

My title is: Still Life with Single Malt, and it is mixed media incorporating plant materials, handmade paper, thread, and paint.

Rosemary

This is an experiment  for Deep Sea Creatures – the idea came from a newspaper article about a submersible discovering a 2m high “waffle-cone” sea-sponge.

During this isolation I have been able to get out decades of my work to sort through.  There are several large boxes of handmade paper which can be reused, printed, collaged, etc..  I hope to be able to work on some before our next exhibition.

Claire

I’ve been exploring Gelli plate printing with the addition of painting and drawing.

Janet

Today we have a new great grandchild so it has been hard to concentrate on doing anything but I have made a pair of origami earrings.  Our daughter Diana is very good at origami and has been pushing me with my clumsy fingers.  (Webmaster Note: Janet is very good at origami jewellery and could show the rest of us a thing or two!)

Diana

I have been working on a 30 day challenge of doing a page in a sketchbook each day.  Here are some of mine.
Missing the days at Primrose…

Webmaster: Thanks everyone for sharing your work.  This is a great way to stay connected and see what each of us is doing, but I know we all can’t wait to get back to Primrose Park.  Fingers crossed it won’t be too long now.

    What an exciting group of work – all wonderful and all so different. It’s great to see members are still working at home while we’re waiting to be able to have real social days and catch up with each other.
