NWCQ workshop ...

with Shelley Rhodes. I'm almost embarrassed to turn up at yet another workshop with Shelley for fear of fear appearing as some kind of groupie but I find her teaching style irresistible. Shelley's workshops are always well prepared and the pace suits me down to the ground, there's enough time to get a taster before moving on to the next step. Whether you continue or take that next step is entirely up to you, there is never any pressure. I find that that her workshops are the only time that I really manage abstraction from my subject as I'm usually, boringly, literal. I defy anyone to identify these images as being based on one of my Grandfather's fob watches:

Unfortunately I've not yet worked out how to achieve the same effect on fabric - but I'll be working on it!
