Hanji Happenings website up and running .....

Beautifully painted Korean fan
Well it's finally happened, my new Hanji Happenings website is up and running. Thank you for being so patient with my lack of posts.

It's been quite a challenge for me as I love new technology but I come unstuck with  computer terminology and  setting up domains, hosting plans,  FTPs etc. and making them all work. Luckily I found someone to work through it all with me step by step.

I do love the creative side of technology though so thanks to my trusty Apple computer setting up the web pages has gone quite smoothly.  I still have things to do to get it all up and running so please bear with me and check back when you can.  

The rest of my time at the moment is in preparing for a new beginners class to start in early September.  I will be working more on the creative side of Hanji really soon as I have lots of new ideas for projects that I'll reveal as time goes on ........

Summer, travel, family and friends .......

I've just returned after a wonderful summer of meeting up with family and friends in different parts of the world.  The travel has been exhausting but the time refreshing as we only get the opportunity to meet up once or twice a year.  Living in different countries as an expat over the last 12 years has had it's disadvantages,  not least of all being away from my family and loved ones for a length of time.  It has been difficult but, it has also had it's advantages  as it's opened up  many new opportunities for me to make more friends and to explore different cultures and their crafts.

It has given me time to explore all things Hanji as I  work on my projects, conduct classes, develop worksheets and travel to meet other Hanji artists.

I've attempted to keep up with the Hanji Happenings postings over the summer but have not done as many as I would have liked.  I hope you'll all bear with me.

Now I'm back in the UAE I've been working on developing my hanji website and setting up Hanji ibooks.  I'll tell you more as time goes on.

Some more of Trinity's lovely work ......

 If you happen to be anywhere near Scottsdale Art Gallery in Tasmania, Australia pop in and take a look at Trinity's lovely work ..... 

 I was really impressed with her 6 foot high tree lamp in the foyer of the gallery. 

It's been a while but I just have to share this ...... Bali paper making
