My turn to be the student June 10, 2017 00:27 1 Comment
Last weekend I went to the West Dean craft fair and lay in the sunshine on the grass listening to music, and went to two lovely craft workshops.
Here's my day in pictures
Paper making workshop
This was so much fun! Making paper is messy, immediate and colourful. We did a little intro workshop and there was tons of wonderful terminology like couching (pronounced kooching) and kissing off. I would most definitely recommend it!
Folded copper jewellery workshop
I loved this, hammering and heating copper up. It reminded me of the glass blowing studio of my student days. I made a wierd looking thing but had a great time exploring copper and what it can do. Plus it's always great hitting things with a hammer.
In between workshops we had a lovely potter around the grounds
