Sanctuary at The Bramble Patch – Roundup

I’m home and have spent a couple of days just thinking about my time at the Bramble Patch with Hilary, processing all the things I learned. Here’s a summary of what I got up to.

The theme I had picked for my sanctuary is Bumble Hole nature reserve, in Netherton. My husband and I like to go walking there when things get a bit too much, and it will be nice to have a little bit of the area at home with me.

I cut stencils and stamps to fit my theme:

Made heaps and heaps of printed papers and fabrics:


And assembled lots of fabulous collages:


Hilary was excellent, as usual, sharing her knowledge about a wide range of topics.


It was a wonderful, and very busy three days, in the company of these lovely ladies:


I learned loads, including:

  • How not to be scared of photos in collage
  • Lots of useful tips about composition
  • How nice it can be to use a different colour palette
  • More about the effectiveness and ease of Lino cutting

I feel like I produced a really cohesive, focused set of work, and I’m very pleased. It was an excellent three days, looking forward to the next one.
