I have just come back from a spectacular four days in Bendigo Victoria. Three of those days I was teaching my Screen Printing and Fabric Design Workshops hosted By Rosalyn Effenberg—who is lucky enough to have an entire cottage to craft in on Honeysuckle Street Bendigo. Yes and create we did.
A dawn start for me on the breathtaking Sydney Harbour.
It truly was a magical sunrise as seen from the Manly Ferry.
Cakes and more cakes.
On the train to Bendigo.

Busy day today, the room is filled with so much inspiration and design ideas.

Last day in Bendigo. And some 20 plus original fabrics are printed. This group includes Amelia, Liz, Roz, Saffron, Lauri, Anne and Maree.
Roz is a master with a hook and her crochet is amazing. She teaches classes weekly in her cottage.
At the end of my wonderful time in Bendigo right before Roz drove me to the train station I helped her to yarn bomb her Rav.
I think it looks amazing. Keep an eye out for it if you are in Bendigo.
Thanks to all who came along and made the Workshops in Bendigo such a memorable time for us all. A huge thanks to Roz who has a heart of gold and put together all three workshops for me.
Please contact Roz here for her craft groups, you will meet amazing people and have a ball.
Next stop for me is Margaret River.
Please do leave a comment. I love hearing from you.
