Kiwi Print Studio, Camborne. I'll start showing you my final print onto fabric. It looks simple, but it made my brain ache. It doesn't look much at the moment, but I hope with a little stitching it will be transformed. Ha! When? Who knows.. We are STILL! House hunting!I had such a great day.. We started off with a sketch, I used one which I'd done at the Falmouth sketch club.. Imaginary fish and boat. My first mistake. Too complicated for the emulsion which you use to 'draw' your image on the screen. It's thick and sticky, so my fine lines didn't work.
This is the print onto paper.. Good job that you can learn from your mistakes.. And boy I made a few.... Hundred!
This is Dena in full swing showing us how to produce a repeat print..
We all had a wonderful day, the class was small the studio large bright and airy.. At the end of the day we were exhausted and we all wanted to learn more..

This time with a medieval feel.. After my visit the other day to the Falmouth Maritime Museum I was once again inspired by all things nautical.. On of the paper house's I've been working on just happened to be ready for it's paint work. Needless to say the finished 'house' will look very different... As their are monsters and mermaids to paint as yet..
I thought you might like to see the technology (the pegs) that I use in my studio. I do so love a peg.
*You might notice on the last photo a blurry mark, I think that my camera got left in the car and it has got damp. If any one has a remedy I would be so grateful. It is so annoying as I haven't had the camera that long.

As we have not had any luck finding out Cornish home. I have taken up building my own out of papier mache. These are still in the early stages but coming along nicely as they develop.. Quite honestly they are a work in progress, meaning I get one bit done then try to figure out what to do next.. Think that I might print on them???
'Saffron Buns' Take:2My attempts to make Saffron buns are improving.. And are tasting much better. I got the yeast working by soaking it in warm milk and sugar... Much better rise this time.
Land's EndNicole and her family have moved to Cornwall this week, so we are now a family all together enjoying every moment of our new way of life.. Click on the photo to see Maud's face.. x
