Sunrise at Amberley, where the Creative Soul Retreat 2009 was held in Melbourne, Australia. It was organised by Bevlea Ross, a very talented and organised lady. The venue, meals, tutors etc etc were so well organised. Her attention to detail was amazing. Everyone had an amazing time. It was great to finally meet the ladies who were in our Yahoo group after the many email exchanges that went on. Three wonderful tutors from USA, DJ Pettit, Bernie Berlin and Stephanie Lee. I spent all my three days with Stephanie Lee and learned to use a butane torch and bench grinder without fear! We made a variety of charms, links for making chains and a beautiful book with metal and soldering on the front and back covers which has plaster pages in. Bevlea has already organised the Creative Soul Retreat for 2010, which has another 4 amazing tutors coming to teach.
This was taken at the end of our class with Stephanie Lee . My table buddy for 3 days Denise Litchfield and Kirsty from SA. We are showing off our plaster paged and soldered cover books that we made. Sephanie...... come back soon! We want to learn more!
I am off to Creative Soul Retreat in Melbourne on Friday13 March til Monday nite 16th March. There are three amazing tutors for USA coming to teach 60 crafty ladies from around Australia. As promised I have made 120 of my famous NZ afghan biscuits for our morning teas. They will be transported in my hand luggage guarded very closely, cant afford to lose even one!
