Freestyle was fab!

I have just had the most awesome-ist weekend! The freestyle tutors were absolutely fantastic. I loved every one of them and each class I did was the ‘best yet.’ I think I was most impressed by Tia – she was just so neat.

These photos are of Emily Falconbridge and her Altered State class. We altered a photo by wetting it, sanding it, painting it and bleaching it oh and then doodling on it. Very messy but very fun. The white/orangey dots on the photo are from the bleach. This was a class I was helping in so I didn’t have the black and white photos everyone else was using. Just happened to have these printed for a different class so thought I’d give it a go. It’s not finished yet. The writing was supposed to be about yourself, I think – didn’t get a chance to write down the journaling prompts she gave out. So last night I was just playing and wrote down some of my impressions of freestyle 07 and the different tutors. If you can read it – it makes a good summary of the weekend!

Helping in the classes was a lot of fun and kept me totally busy – a good thing. But I now have a whole bunch of projects half started cause I didn’t get as much time to work on stuff as the others in the class. (Not that many people actually got stuff finished.)

I will need to go through the photos I took and do a longer post later when I get back from seeing Dad in Dunedin.
