Kingsbridge Estuary

Creative Crafts

Leader Glenn reports as follows in May 2019:

This Group meets in the large hall at the Methodist Church in Kingsbridge from 2pm until 4pm on the Second Monday of the month.

The group has now been going for four sessions and in that time we have achieved mark making, still life, mosaic forming and decoupage in addition to visiting the Craft for Crafters Exhibition at Westpoint. The group decided on a session once a month to enable them to complete one project before going on to another and this seems to be working well. At our most recent session we grouted in our mosaic pieces in order to complete the process. We then looked at decoupage and will next be looking at collage. Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing common household materials and creating special paint effects onto an object. Furniture, plates, mirrors, picture frames and glass etc can be used as a base. Pictures from magazines, books, wrapping paper, greetings cards, fabric and paper napkins or specialized papers are layered to create an effect. The design is then sealed with decoupage varnish, often in multiple coats, until it looks like a painting or inlay work. Its origin is thought to be East Siberian tomb art.

Each topic is tackled separately so that should a member not want to attempt that subject then they can continue with one already covered or continue with their preferred craft. The membership is very versatile and has a lot of talent for crafts in general. We visited Harbour House recently to look at the work of Colin Allbrook, a watercolour landscape artist from North Devon.
