Summer Outings – Grantville Jetty

Grantville is about 45 minutes from where we live, heading out towards Phillip Island. We’ve been here before (didn’t have much luck with that sunset either). We were meeting the Melbourne Sony group down there, have been to a few online meetups, but never in person, so it was nice to meet some people in…

Share your world – 22nd December 2020

Summer Workshops – Still Life

I recently ran my first Still Life workshop in quite a while, it was lovely to get back to basics. Initially, I thought it may not go ahead, due to poor bookings, but a week before the class it was full with a waitlist, funny how things work out. One of the ladies (and this…
