Bless her, Neet mentioned in a comment to me about my cheerful disposition but it wasn't until I saw this photo by Becca that I realised how smiley I was this weekend lol! I do love teaching though, and all attendees were fab to work with, so I had a lot of fun :)
Becca took this fabulous picture of Rita and Neet too. There were some great pieces of claywork created in Neet's classes. Just take a look at these
Chris echoed the shape of the Cow Parsley in the clay and it just looks fab!
Lou worked her clay as one piece and added these beautifully coloured clay keyholes.
Now Lynn says this is the only time you'll ever find her ironing! ie when it's involved in creating a craft project. The fabric element of the weekend, taught by Becca, was very popular, and many people went home last night and added more little extras to their flowers, dragonflies and other shapes. It was such a relaxing element to do that despite being tired from a busy day, it was easy to pick up in the evening. I added my dragonfly to the side of my box, decorating the textured book that Kay taught.
Our name badges for the weekend were just as creative as the box itself, very inventive!
Everyone worked hard, and went home with a stunning finished product. Thanks so much everyone for making it such a wonderful weekend, and to Paddy for inviting me to be a part of it :)
I really did have fun :)
