May, June, July, August, September, October and now its November.

So much is happening and has happened in and around the HUB during these last months. Wonderful people from all parts of the world have come and gone.....fences have been built, new vegetable gardens have been dug and planted, The ring road around the Ecovillage has been started and trenches for the services to the house lots around the road area about to be dug.

The vegetable gardens have thrived all through winter and a most amazing crop of 'Greenfeast' peas are being harvested continuously. Many do not make it to the cooking stage. Fresh from the pod is the way to go..........................yum.

A visit to this years Textures Grampians included a walk to an area that had been burnt in fires and also damaged by severe storms and flooding in recent times. Again I was reminded that out of "bad' comes 'good". This beautifully constructed bridge was part of the upgrading of the area. Artfully constructed and proportioned the bridge, a sculptural statement, made ones heart sing!

Summer School Drawing and Printmaking 2012

Snap shot of the Drawing and Printmaking class held last week. In workshop we looked at ways of drawing and mark making that related to the printmaking processes. 

The printmaking was taught from the viewpoint as 'taster' workshop for those who have always wanted to explore the printmaking processes and haven’t gotten around to it! 

 The methods of relief and intaglio will be introduced through the use of lino and dry-point and etching. Ways of printing with and without a press, suitable papers and inks will be discussed and demonstrated.

Mixing our own blacks for printmaking.
