Maybe you captured some interesting photos that suggest a colour scheme or a graphic design. As for me, I am still trying to figure out how the maker of these sculptures managed to balance the rocks without the help of a glue gun.
Our guild regrouped in late September and we decided to start off the fall season with a show of what members had produced over the summer, a demonstration and a challenge.
It was obvious from the items brought for display that many of our members had managed to squeeze a lot of studio time in between hosting friends and family, travelling, gardening and playing.

Whether their projects evolved from a study or just evolved from thin air guild members were on a creative roll. Some of the pictures are shown below while some appear as individual items under Member's Works to the right of the blog post.

The meeting closed with a challenge. The Qualicum Weavers and Spinner's Guild will celebrate its 25th year of operation in 2016. To celebrate this "silver anniversary" guild members have been challenged to produce a piece based on "glitz". So, spinners think about creating a yarn that sparkles with silver and gold. Weavers get out those metallic threads and start designing.
