This is a glimpse of what I've been doing lately, in the crafting department. Not so much knitting lately. My promise to write a pattern for the yellow cardigan remains to be fulfilled, I'm almost finished, but somehow I find it hard not to spend all my spare time drawing and clipping and playing in my basement studio. I've taken the silk-screen printing course (at Norske grafikeres verksted, Oslo) I mentioned earlier, and it was very inspiring and useful. But to my big disappointment, they don't rent out work-shop space for amateurs like my self. I looked forward to using the photo-emulsion technique, in brief; the whole array of printing gear, but no -. So now I'm hunting for somewhere else to practice silk-screen printing, if anyone reading this know of an open work-shop type of place, please let me know..
Meanwhile, I'm having more than enough to do experimenting with my new scanner/ printer and trying to get a grip of photoshop. I also got a new sewing machine for my birthday a while ago, which I have not yet put my hands on. But I would like to have access to a real silk-screen work-shop!
