As the cooler Autumn mornings begin to turn your attention inward to the gentle task of creating, where will you begin? With new inspiration sent by changeable weather, with memories picked up from unfinished projects, longing to be completed or will you look within to see what new perspectives you can discover there. Where will you begin?
This term we offer you a sprinkling of workshops, from a free Creative Morning to a knitting workshop beginning with the humble square, soft pastel drawings: looking at ‘the tree’ in all of us and a talk on resilience, in you and your family. For full information see our workshop page.

We are excited to offer some different types of workshop at The Honeyclock in Term 1 of 2013. We still have felting and pastel drawing for those of you eager to get your hands busy and your heart singing with the joy of creating. Add to that the possibility of creating a fashion talking piece in the form of a button necklace, made with all your old buttons! But we’re adding some ‘life classes’ too! Some opportunities to talk and share, to discuss matters close to your heart, and to learn some new ways of thinking about things. All the information is on our WORKSHOP page. We look forward to your interest! Give us a call to book your place and, even better, find a friend to bring too!

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…
