Saturday, February 28th It's our facilitator Jeighk's last day and we are celebrating with a GIANT COLLABORATIVE PUPPET!
The bird head created from cardboard and papier mache.
Incredible texture on the bird feathers made from old paper, pastels, paint washes! This generated lots of interest and their was a sort of assembly line of feather makers at work. (No photos because Melissa, who normally documents, was away.)
Just outside of Open Studio, one of our Wonder'neath artists diligently at work on Wearable Art Show fashion!
Incredible three-session glass painting complete! Love this work!
We often don't post 'behind the scenes' shots but in honour of Jeighk's last day, this shot demonstrates a serious commitment to Open Studio. This is from the night before the opening - materials are being sorted, layout being decided. Suddenly we all get an idea that we should build a workbench! 2am...
Thanks Jeighk! You will be missed, but we hope to see you in the fall again!
