Had a day to occupy myself over east so i visited Bletchley Park.
This is a copy of the machine that cracked the Enigma code..... hmmm how interesting.
Now this is more like it... Pidgeon Parachutes!!! They were our secret weapon during the war.
special little rucksacks (ok ankle sacks) full of secrets...
right.... enough of that frivolity back to work. I did a lecture on friday evening to the North Herts Embroiderers Guild, they really know how to do a social .....fantastic food. Next day i was employed to teach the amazing art of Altered Books here are the results.
This one is my sampler
I think this one was made by local celebrity Gina Ferrari sorry if it isn't Gina i should really make notes
As you can see the students really got going a flew with it. The problem i find with Altered books workshops is that students have a problem cutting or painting pages of a BOOK but really you're just giving it a new lease of life.....
now.. back home i've got a whole house to move.
