Contextart Blue Mountains with Anita Larkin

I have had a wonderful week doing some sculptural felting with Anita Larkin.

There were 6 of us and it was most relaxing. We made many wonderful pieces

I learnt so much about using the properties of fibre to sculpt. Anita is a very experienced sculptor and we were so lucky to have the benefit of her experience for a week

I made some neck pieces and a bowl, basically trying to play with the techniques.

Sculpting in felt takes a lot of strength. The forms are so very hard when fulled. It is a totally different concept to felting for clothing.

I learnt a lot, had a lot of fun, and met some very talented gals, and just want to felt. It was wonderful.

One highlight was meeting up with Stella, an old doll club buddy and amazing felter.

Here are some class photos. I made the white bowl in the background, and the 2 neckpieces in the foreground. One is very modular and the other is over wire These pics are from our last day exhibition. The other pieces were made by Pam from Vic and Pam from the Blue Mts.

Greg came with me and being foodies we weren't disappointed with Katoomba, k town. It has been spruced up a bit since we were last here a couple of years ago. We didn't have a bad meal at all. Some were promising but basically really good pub food style. Better than we remember.

Our 2 best meals were takeaway from gourmet delis in Leura.

We paid a lot to stay in forget me not cottage in K town and it was lovely

Would I do context art next year. Sure will.
