We will meet at the Tangled Garden, https://tangledgarden.ca, overlooking the Grand Pre UNESCO Heritage site and Bay of Fundy. We will begin by walking the exquisite Tangled Gardens, noting the play of colours of the various plants and how they combine in nature. Overlooking Blomidon, the fundamentals of wet on wet painting will be explained, tools used will be identified and the fundamentals of colour combinations explained. I will demonstrate the technique and you will then experiment with wet on wet on paper and fabric before creating your own one of a kind silk scarf.
Hi, my name is Eleonora. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree, an Education degree and am a retired teacher with 32 years of experience working with students and parents both in the public system and Waldorf school. My primary focus was in music education and I continued by studies with textile arts. Having recently moved to the beautiful Annapolis Valley here in Nova Scotia, I decided that my teaching days were not quite over. I love to share my passion of working with natural fibres, especially painting and dyeing and ecoprinting on silk and also working with Japanese hand made paper and bookbinding. I believe that we are all artists, able to learn and create great beauty. Sometimes, we simply need a little support to reveal what is within each of us.
