Over the years we have heard so many textile artists talk about the importance of keeping a sketchbook. At a recent meeting Maggie H kindly offered to set up a group of members who would be interested in “trying” to meet the challenge creating a page a day.Beatrice & Harry helping Granny Vernice with her homework!
Yesterday four of us went to Maggie’s house for what turned out to be a fun afternoon. We were asked to bring paper, a small square spiral sketchbook, Pritt stick and pencils. After a chat about everybody’s expectations Maggie turned on some music to relax us and we were given our first task using A4 paper.
Two hours passed amazingly quickly and before leaving we agreed the date of our next meeting in October. At home we now have various tasks to do to achieve our goal of "one page a day".
Thank you Maggie for your time and for helping us get started. We look forward to October!
