Mixed Media Circus Workshop at Darkroom Door in Berkeley Vale, Australia

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Of Living as an Artist, Mixed Media Workshop

After the workshop in Melbourne, Julie and I taught in Berkeley Vale at Darkroom Door, about 1 1/2 hours North of Sydney. My wonderful friend and awesome manufacturer Rachel Greig hosted us in her warehouse and classroom and it a great group rocking out the paint, art supplies and art journals!

Everyone was working for three day, creating covers, painting, stamping, stenciling, book binding – getting messy fingers and tables:) It was so much fun! I loved the class room with high tables and high top chairs, making it possible for everyone to choose to work standing up or sitting. Since I work standing up- this was a dream 🙂

    I would love to take some of your classes. I enjoyed seeing all of the finished projects – especially the elephant designs. I collect elephants and I’m always looking for new stamps/stencils and ways to use them.
    the girl riding the elephant was a clever idea.
    thanks for sharing so many wonderful finished projects.

    Nat, you even managed to post different pics than Julie did.
    I really like the quote “when all else fails, join the circus”.
    It goes well with “not my monkeys, not my circus” in some way.
