I also had the most amazing students. So warm and eager. Not a complainer in the bunch and I enjoyed getting to know my repeat students even better and truly hope that the new ones will come back to see me.
Saturday was the heavy day with lots of physicality. One day for sculpted hats IS doable, but not for the lazy and I had a great group that made great hats and trusted in me that: those holes would disappear, it would fit, it would all stick, and they would just need to rub a little bit longer. Thanks for trusting, ladies.
Day two began with the knowledge that I had a group of hard workers, so many options were given...and taken...with some lovely results. I managed to photograph a few, but missed others (sorry!) Will you trust me when I say they were all a success and looked amazing? Of course you will ;o). Silk was flying, wool was felting, texture was happening. It was all good.
So here I sit, my van still packed (will address tomorrow), with a glass of wine (thanks to Susan...can you believe my good fortune?!) with tired feet. The studio will take a couple of days to reassemble and then I am back to work. I will keep you posted.Until then, enjoy the images!
