Perth here I come! I'm truly excited to be invited as the guest artist at the upcoming Perth Craft and Quilt Show in May, which is only a few weeks away. 

For the five days of The Perth Craft and Quilt Fair I will be teaching daily workshops.

Screen Printing and Fabric Design from 10 to noon and Hand Painting Fabric from 1-2pm.

Please pop by my booth to say hello, as I would be so happy to chat to you about your work maybe inspire you to learn a new technique!

While there I am going to show my current original work and demonstrating in my workshops. I will have fabric to sell and I yes I will have my new art work on display. 

If you fancy coming along to one of my workshops while I'm in Perth I can take your booking here.  

Places are limited. 

This is a picture of me at my exhibition opening last month.

The Loop

I am reading so much at the moment. In particular all the social media site beckon me. I bounce between the four main ones and get lost in a blur of perfection. Not my perfect life but yours?  I do also subscribe to amazing peoples blogs or their websites so I get my fix in my inbox as well. I have so much to read I could never get through it in a day. It's an amazing time to be alive at the moment, especially as an artist. There are so many people making their dream come true and seemingly making it work! It really seams that we can all be who we want to be. RIGHT?

Are you living your dream? 

Maybe I should stop reading so much and make more. I think I would be happier as I'm quite envious of how successful you all are. 

While I was thinking these thoughts and I will need to think some more about this. I added a few layers of stitches to my painting. I am super happy with this one.

Inspired

Posted on September 18, 2015 by Saffron Craig | 0 comments

To be honest I am inspired. Maybe more than I have been in over two years. Yes I make things all the time but what I am doing at the moment feels like it is coming from somewhere new. Experimenting. I feel like I'm allowing myself time to be. I am allowing myself to work as an artist not just a designer.

Right now I am playing with colours. Colour is right up there as my favourite thing. I could mix and experiment with colour for the rest of my life. I just love colour and play with it as much as I can.

I am mixing soft pinks which are are important in my work—my heart is happy when I am working with pinks. Pistachio green another favourite colour contrasts and reacts subtly on my fabric. I really do enjoy watching the soft lines of the colours merge and change, bleed and transform.
