while we're on the subject

Marion Gorr, proprietor extraordinaire of my favourite silk-and-all-that-goes-with-it emporium, Beautiful Silks, has just let me know that the Waiuku on-farm workshop in March 2010 is nearly filled

one live-in and two off-farm places remain
it's a lovely region in one of my favourite countries
i'm very much looking forward to becoming acquainted with the northern flora as my experiences in Aotearoa so far have been located mostly in and around Wellington with the odd excursion south to Nelson, Blenheim and of course to the Deep - Invercarrrgill. [and yes, the spelling is intentional]

March is a wonderful month for making plant colour [in the Southern Hemisphere] as the plants will be brimming with summer goodness

the four pictures illustrating the post are details of students' work from the Blenheim region woolshed workshop in 2008


  1. Gorgeous work. The second image looks a though light is being emitted from it. -Jayne

  2. Beautiful work to see today as I sit here looking out at the grey sky and falling snow on bare trees in Ohio. Not unpleasant, still these pieces evoke the glory of late summer and early autumn.
