Moving with the winds

As many of you will know The Honeyclock has been for sale since February.  Our buyer doesn’t seem to have found their way to us just yet however we are still hopeful they are on their way.  In the mean time we have discovered we will need to vacate our current premises and so our last trading day in our current light filled shop will be Saturday 14 June, that’s about 6 weeks away.
If you are not on our mailing list or our ‘friend’ on Facebook, or following our ‘blog’ and you want to stay up to date with where we move to please send us your email address and we can add you to our ‘moving notification’ list and keep you fully informed and up to date with our movements.
In the meantime make sure you come in and see us and stock up on all your favourite goodies while stocks last

pastel drawing workshop – week 1

Week 1 of Landscapes & Skyscapes with Lesley Cotter saw us working with shavings of chalk pastels.  We rubbed blue with a cotton ball to create the negative space of clouds. Creating soft wisps of nothingness in the peaceful atmosphere of The Honeyclock was a delightfully relaxing way to spend a Saturday afternoon… Then we added rose pink and a touch of lemon to the clouds, before grounding our pictures (and ourselves) with Prussian blue. Finally, a glow of lemon into the blue base brought the harmony of green.  A little bit tricky in parts, but a great start to learning a new technique! Thank you Lesley… Places are still available for the remaining 3 weeks.  If you are inspired by this reviewer’s experience, call us on 9434 1944…
