What we've been up to
Wonderful ‘Winter’ colours just for me!
Bev recently went to see Jane Brook of House of Colour, in Worcester, to have a Colour Analysis done. Whilst sceptical at first, Bev had a fabulous time learning from Jane, what a difference it makes, wearing colours that enhance your complexion and look. The result was that Bev’s colours are in the ‘Winter’ range.
Totally converted, it’s not a surprise that Bev would set about creating a silk scarf that works with the blues and greens, in her new colour palette. Though a challenge to mix the dyes, you can see the result is beautiful.
Bev will soon be working on creating scarves that work with Spring, Summer and Autumn and she highly recommends a visit to see Jane, to find out what your perfect colour palette would be.
I would like to thank Jane Brook, Image Consultant and Personal Stylist for House of Colour, based in Worcester, for a truly wonderful day.
Having several clients who had been through this process, I have to say that I was still very sceptical, as I booked myself onto Jane’s Colour Analysis Course. Having been an Art teacher for years, I thought I knew which colours suited me and felt that I did not want to be restricted in my choices (or so I thought!)
The whole process was fascinating and I came away with a Wallet of Colours, that suited my complexion. Jane totally opened my eyes, further, to the wonders of Colour and I am now having great fun, mixing the Silk Dyes, to create a range of Silk scarves that match my own colour palette. I highly recommend ladies and gentlemen, to treat themselves to the Colour Analysis Course.
A snap shot of four lovely ladies enjoying a unique experience on a Bebanne Freestyle Painted Silk Scarf Course. All of them finding out that they absolutely do have the ability to create…
Wonderfully led by Bev, who expertly guides and inspires you throughout the day to learn and understand the art of silk painting. She opens your mind and encourages you to be expressive with your creation. The day is very much hands on, so you learn as you create your first sample square. Bev explains the techniques and how the dyes blend and shape on the silk, giving you confidence to experiment and watch the magic happen.
All the ladies agreed the experience was thoroughly absorbing and therapeutic, enabling them to leave aside life’s trials and stresses! At the end of the day they were the proud owners of beautiful unique silk scarve creation to be proud of, and had a memorable day to cherish.
A wonderful experience! From art at school, decades ago, I was convinced I couldn’t ‘do art’. With the tutor’s expert facilitation and affirmation, emerged a creative part of me I never thought existed. The effects stay with me. Who knows what may emerge next? Thank you so much. I’d recommend these workshops to anybody, especially those who have been told they can’t pain, draw or create!
Thank You… Welly Lai
Groom organises a very special surprise gift for his Bride…
Adam came into the Bebanne Studio to discuss with Bev his idea for a wedding stole, which he wanted to give Suzanne on their wedding day, which was just a month away!… He wanted her to capture Suzanne’s love of owls! This was no problem for Bev, as she is a lover of nature… the real challenge was Adam had no idea of the colour scheme the bride has chosen…only that a thought the flowers were peach!
Bev set about planning the design of the stole to feature; Owls, Wedding Date, Bride & Grooms initials, all worked into silk using a delicate select of dyes in hues and tones of peach and cream. The whole project, from concept to completion, took 40 hours… an absolute labour of love to produce a beautiful original silk stole to be a memento of a very special day.
Both Adam and Bev held their breath until the moment Suzanne’s father presented her with the gift just before the wedding ceremony began!!
As you can see from the photographs capturing the moment it was a resounding success… Suzanne was both surprised and delighted with her very special gift.
I can’t thank Bev enough for helping me give my beautiful bride such a beautiful and personal gift on our special day. Your wedding day goes so quick and it brings back all the fun memories every time she wears it.
I met Bev less than a month before our wedding and thought a personalised silk scarf was a great idea. I knew exactly what I wanted, but had no idea what it would look like or how to explain it. The creative process and questions Bev asked over a cup of coffee meant she really understood what I was looking for from the type of owls Suzanne liked, down to the all important colour scheme.
The outcome was incredible. have no idea how you did it, in such a short space of time. The colours of the scarf matched Suzanne’s dress perfectly.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Bebanne Art to anyone looking for that special gift.
