A few weeks ago a lovely picture popped up on my pinterest feed. It turned out that it was the work of the very talented Emma Louise Wilson and when I googled her I discovered she not only ran workshops, but that there was one coming up, only an hour's drive away! [which, considering it was an american pinterest board I was following just shows how small the world is!!]
So off my daughter and I went yesterday to play with porcelain clay.
We learnt how to attach small pieces of Emma's work with wire (which we got to keep :) ) to make hanging 'threds' before getting stuck in practising her techniques on porcelain clay.
'threds' by Emma Louise Wilson
one of the boxes of Emma's goodies we got
to rummage through to make our own 'threds' with
some of the pieces the class produced
I was in heaven playing with lace, rubber stamps and exotic tools such as pens and needles to add texture ;)
