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.
