What a great workshop. Jenni Cole treated us all to a delightful afternoon. She kept us both busy and interested. We used everyday chalk sharpened to a point and pastels. We had the use of three different boards generously provided by Jenni. What a treat. Jenni also showed us different ways to use the chalk including pot plants and old frames to jazz up blackboards to use around the home.
Medieval Line Fillers
A most enjoyable afternoon was spent with Jill Robertson leading a workshop on Medieval Line Fillers.
Before we embarked on this Jill demonstrated how to create a feather paintbrush with a very fine tip, which would be capable of producing extremely fine details such as those seen in medieval manuscripts. This was the very Australian version made with Cockatoo feathers.
We then commenced our main project for the afternoon, the goal of which was to produce a set of bookmarks featuring a decorative panel in medieval style and some writing in Gothic script.
This was an interesting and most enjoyable workshop.
