The Calligraphy and Papercraft group are having an exhibition of their beautiful script creations in our Atrium Gallery starting on the evening of Friday 5th September and running through to Saturday 13th September, so plenty of time to organise a visit to the Cottage for some exceptional eye candy.
When thinking of Calligraphy of course your mind immediately flies to thoughts of beautifully penned manuscripts, but not all Calligraphy is on paper, in today's modern world Calligraphy can be found on many everyday items, such as this beautifully worked cushion.
Val, yes she of the bottomless 'block orphanage' drawer, which sees so many charity quilts being created was helping her friend Norma with the creation of this lovely cushion for the exhibition.
Now quilters know how quilters love to pat, pet and stroke beautiful fabric, and I guess that applies to all things beautiful, Heather was spotted amongst some of the display pieces, running her fingers up and down a very long frame, it must have been about 5' long and was framing the most intricate and beautifully done piece. Rather reminded me of a song that hit the net with an accompanying video a few years back, was it called 'Butterflies Garden'? what a feast for the senses that song and video were, well this piece to me was reminiscent of that song and video, all done in black and white, and if you are a fan of Zentangles or Tangling this will be right up your alley. It is a fantastic piece and yes, it would look great on Heathers wall.
The Calligraphy and Papercraft group have named their exhibition 'Taking Tea' so how apt is a 'Tea Tasting' and lecture from the folks from the 'Silva Spoon' tea and coffee emporium , have you visited them yet? bet you have, well if you live in this neck of the woods you most probably have, and if you haven't visited...just go, its amazing, the food is fantastic and the teas...well they are tea-riffic (sorry, couldn't help myself)
The 'History of Tea' presentation is on Saturday 6th at 10.30a.m and will be followed at 2.30 by the talented Belle Voce Girls Small Vocal Group from Bli Bli State School.
