Visiting Gympie, stunning in its clear green winter perfection. I have visited the gallery space previously running a silk workshop and textile design and printing workshop with Flying Arts. This time the workshop was natural dyes for the Textile and Fibre group. The group were creative and inventive, and so it followed that I made some new discoveries, one that my usual, textile steamer can hold and steam many individual pieces suspended and separated something like loading a kiln for ceramics.
I Stayed on an idyllic property west of Gympie where hosts Marie and Dennis live with their horses dogs and menagerie of birds and a flock of sheep.
