Applied creativity retreat

It hardly seems possible that it is  already two weeks since I attended this fabulous event in Coventry. Six three hour workshops in two days it was full on creativity and such fun...and we came away with six fabulous completed projects.

The tutors for this event were three amazingly talented and beautiful women... Marta Lapowska. Anna Dabrowska (aka Finnabair) and France Papillon...but if you know their work you would probably recognise their style in the projects we made.

                                                                                                                                                                            Day one started with Marta and a vintage project, followed by Anna's lady assemblage piece and ending with France and what should have been a decorated egg candle holder in a basket, but the temps in the venue affected the plaster and many of us had failed projects... but we are all artists and we made something out of nothing... and I came home with a bag of plaster to have another go at home.


Day two began with Anna and this amazing book, followed by France and the abstract circles  project and ending with this very pretty floral piece with Marta.

I loved all of the projects...and although each technique involved was demonstrated by the tutor, we had free rein with a wide variety of products,  choice of paint colours, stencils designs etc  and style interpretations... so although we each did essentially the same project, the range of results was astounding.

We picked up loads of hints and tips and came away with lots of products to try at home. It was an amazing weekend and I am so glad I went.

Until next time
