Fabric, Paper, Scissors Taster Day

Oh what a fabulous day we had on Friday when we held our first Taster Day, here are a few pictures of the day and The Studio.  Each participant made a collage using pretty papers, ephemera, vintage lace, buttons and trim, and of course a vintage image.
The Studio was stocked to the brim with additional goodies incase any participant wanted to add to their piece, or stock up themselves for future creations.  The shelves were full of jars containing old buttons, gems, rusty keys and vintage findings.
Vintage lace that has been washed and pressed was available to buy in lengths and also bags of lace scraps.  And many tools were available to use if participants required other implements other than those they brought along in their "Tool Kits".

Backing papers, handmade papers and collage sheets were also available to browse through for inspiration or purchase for a future project.
And of course there were pieces of Little White Studio Art at every turn for more inspiration and creative loveliness.
Break time was a work of art in itself, with scrumptious Cherry & Vanilla Cupcakes supplied by Karens Daughter-in-Law, who is an artist of the culinary kind.
But the order of the day was create, create, create, and everyone was busy either sticking, cutting, positioning and admiring.  You could feel the creative energy in the room.
Here is one of our participants pleased as punched with her finished collage.  She is returning next week to commence some weekly workshops to create a canvas incorporating collage skills she learnt today along with paint this time.... oh fun times ahead I'm sure.
If this post has wet your appetite and you would like to learn more about The Little White Studio, we will be having an Open Studio & Christmas Gift Event on Friday and Saturday 2nd & 3rd November.  More details on this Event will follow this post in a day or two so please check back... and of course spread the word with any Arty friends or family you think may be interested!

Only One Week to go!!!

Gosh how time flies, it's only one week to go now till the first Taster Day at The Little White Studios, and Karen and I are so excited to welcome our first guests through the doors.  There are still places available for anyone who may be able to make next week, but if you are interested in attending but the date doesn't work for you, please do contact us by email as we will be holding future Taster Days throughout the remainder of 2012.
The Workshop Studio is looking fabulous and a sneek peek of the Studio will be shown in a post next week.  We were both working from the Studio today stocking the shelves with supplies and displaying beautiful pieces of art on the walls for bags of inspiration for our guests, so be sure to drop by the Blog next week for the unveiling!
Collage will be a big part of our first few workshops, but future classes will cover a variety of other topics and these will be highlighted here as we move through the Autumn of 2012.  We are also having an Open Studio in October where visitors will be able to purchase handmade items and also view the Studio and see demonstrations, more details on this will be made available here within the next few weeks, so do check back often!
