Coptic Binding photographed by Candice Herne
The end of March. The year is whizzing by. The last 3 weeks have been jam packed with out of town visitors. Including the lovely Sophie Munns from Brisbane. Sophie and I caught up for a chat and a quick studio tour. It was lovely to see Sophie! I was also invited to the beautiful Rusty Roo for a social art weekend. Thanks Sharon! I had such a wonderful time.I attempted to teach myself how to Coptic bind artist books. I got impatient and ditched the instructions and went with a Candy bind. I really would love to do a artist book workshop. I enjoy workshops, I find I enjoy the teachings and learning and enjoy the hands on interactive process. And you can ask for assistance when you get lost.
I have been watching lots of printing video's on You Tube, while these are really inspiring, and great research material. There is nothing like the hands on. And you usually meet people who are interested in the same things you are interested in.
Last Thursday night my framed photographs 'On a clear day I can see god I II III' were exhibited at the Treading Water Brisbane Flood Fundraising Event. I donated one framed photograph valued at $1200 to raise money for the Queensland Premier 's Disaster Relief Appeal.
The creativity has been flowing here at the Candice Herne Studio. Next post I will share with you the start of my creative journey and spend the next few posts showing you different parts of it. There is also a invitation to exhibit in Brisbane early October. And my son Rhody has been productively making monotype wrapping paper. Rhody also designed the packaging and label and has been invited to set up a stall in the 'Entrpreneurs corner' at the local Montville Markets. Can't wait for that one :)! till next post. Candyxx
