What an incredible start to the new school year! It’s been absolutely mad getting back into the swing go things but somehow when I get home to the North, all that energy I thought I’d lost finds its way to the surface…literally…as you’ll see! In this episode I experiment with some botanical printing and then utilize those prints in encaustic collage pieces. A great way to spend a Saturday in September in the sun. I have finished sweater and continue to dream about all the woolly possibilities to come. Thank you for supporting the project. I hope you find something of value here. Many blessings, Sarah
Alas, it is the end of the August and so begins the school year. I have so many more endeavors and experiments I want to pursue. Gone are the long languid days of summer in the studio. I am excited to see my students again but I’ll miss the spontaneity of being at the house and access to all my supplies. Rob and I we’re back at the cabin for a few days and had the pleasure of seeing some neat wildlife. I didn’t bring my good camera hence the rather shoddy footage but there were moose and beaver, great blue herons, kingfishers and lots of common loons.
Thank you for tuning in and for those that contribute financially, thank you.

Hello friends! Don’t mind the sound…I was at my parents without my normal equipment. Ai! There is always something to pack. I’ve been south caring for my mum after surgery so this episode might reflect a bit more of my fringe self. Things are going a bit crazy at the studio with all the possibilities. Will I try to rein it in? I don’t think so. More to come, and if you’re a Patron..hold on to your hat! I will be uploading some bonus content which I hope includes my Mum! As always, a heartfelt thank you to those that invest financially. I hope you enjoy!

It was fun to gather a little maple sugaring footage for you all. This process starts with tapping so you’ll have to wait for the boiling stage! This is a process that Rob thoroughly enjoys every year. In this edition, I highlight some more geli printing techniques I learned from Robyn McClendon on her YouTube channel. I also talk about one of my favorite yarns, Foula. As always, many thanks for taking some time be here and for those that contribute financially, I am deeply grateful. I have added a bonus episode over on Patreon highlighting six of my favorite yarns…which I end up labeling my top 5 but, ahem, it’s six 😉
