It may be wild and wet outside, but spring’s in full bloom inside at Skyeworks! Our “In Bloom” exhibition featuring the wildflower paintings of Jeremy Rossiter runs until Saturday. Don’t miss it!
37 tins of gloss paint.
21 tubes of oil paint.
2 attempts on new ‘canvasses’.
Hours of painting, layering and revisiting each work.
And it all comes together on the 29th when Jeremy Rossiter‘s In Bloom Exhibition opens at Skyeworks!
Jeremy, talking about the focus of this exhibition, said: “What particularly attracts me to wild flowers and weeds is that, as with mountains, there is a beauty without any rules or influence by mankind, a chaotic radiance. From secluded areas to places where man has been, I really like nature’s stubborn resilience and ability to reclaim land with such a display.”
Lynn Pryde will be in on Thursday 13th December from 10 to 12.30 for a very informal, relaxed session aimed at folk that haven’t stitched in a long time or who have never used a sewing machine.
The machines at Skyeworks are fantastic for complete beginners and truly easy to use. With the speed set at tortoise mode, you can take it very slowly indeed. Not being able to see to thread a needle isn’t an excuse for not coming either as the machines all have built-in needle threaders!
Cost: £20. Phone 01478-612669 to reserve a spot or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The project in this Monday evening’s jewellery workshop was wire-wrapped rings and bracelets with beaded charms.
Next Monday will see us making beads for Christmas using polymer (oven-baked) clay. Beginners welcome! Book by phoning 01478 612669 or emailing email@example.com. Cost £12 (bring your own clay or buy some).
After all making some citrus-fruit canes together (oranges, limes, grapefruit, lemon), some of us worked diligently to create an intricate flower cane while others decided to work with left-over canes from previous weeks. All-in-all, a recipe for some serious creative fun!
We’re also busy finalizing our workshops schedule for the rest of the year, and if there’s anything you’d particularly like, do let us know.
In our last jewellery workshop, we made bracelets and necklaces using memory wire and the polymer-clay beads we’d previously created.
This Monday’s class (6pm to 9pm, £18 including basic materials, use of tools, tuition, coffee and cake) will deal with basic jewellery-making techniques (such as making loops with pliers and adding catches) as well as explain how to make polymer clay canes (which you then cut into segments to create individual beads). Book a spot by phoning us on 01478-612669 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
