St Joan of Arc secondary school's art department has asked me to come in and speak to their grade 12 class as part of their artist guest speaker series.
I am preparing my works this weekend for next Friday's engagement.
Some of my pieces incorporate paper and since many of them have travelled and have been handled quite a bit I need to make a few minor repairs.
I will also include "pieces in progress" so they can see the stages of a textile work.
I am bringing my post cards which are my version of sketching- an important part in creating my work.
I want to keep the 30 students interested. I have decided to demo the free motion technique on my sewing machine. I use it in all my work.
