Last weekend it was the opening of the Petites Exhibition in Wangaratta which they hold on the alternate year to the Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award. There were about 120 pieces exhibited and RMIT ex students were well represented with about 12 of them in the exhibition - including me. The standard of the work was very high and I was chuffed to be in such good company. The tapestry was one I did last year for one of my assignments. The design for the tapestry came from a photograph I took at the Australian Garden at Cranbourne that I played with in Photoshop and Illustrator; it was called "Water From the Desert". But the best thing was that someone bought my piece of tapestry. I did a workshop over the weekend about making miniature books and on the Sunday when it was quiet we went into the gallery where I saw the red spot under my tapestry. I couldn't believe my eyes; whoever bought my work made me very happy.
The workshop was really interesting and practical and I made 2 miniatures and started a third which isn't finished; maybe one day when I don't have any homework.
I got into an awful mess making the second one; luckily all the media were water soluable.
I had fun.
