Circles Circles, Everywhere Circles…..

As blogged about here I entered a mini exhibition titled Circles hosted by CRAG and the local Textile Arts Sewing group.  Having no idea what I was doing, I took the simple route and made two very basic, but bright Circles entries.   Delivering them on the Friday I finally got to meet another CRAG member who had just been a name on my email … always good to see the face behind the name.  One more to add to my list.  Saturday morning on the way to deliver my eldest to work I called in to check it out and get a few pictures to post here.

Put simply – my entries looked like a ten year old had done them. I know, we are our own worst critics…

The craftsmanship of the other entries was exquisite.  So many beautiful pieces of art work.  And circles everywhere! Loads of gorgeous circles.  Never been a big fan of circles, but the interpretations here were definitely an eye opener.

Along with the actual quilts/wall hangings and boards there was a trade table with hats, bangles, scarves and skeins of textile wools, plus another man who made the most gorgeous Iris Folding cards while his wife made cards using Encaustic art*

Some pictures of the exhibition.

*Encaustic art is just amazing.  You use wax crayons on a hot iron and place it on the paper.  By moving the iron you make lots of cool patterns.  She does classes and I think sometime on the near future I will be heading along to one!!  See here for more details.

Here’s a fun circle song to end my post… 🙂
