Jewellery, sketching and workshop

Busy, busy. I've finally completed a project that has been occupying my time of late, but I can't show you pictures. I can now concentrate on a couple of commissions I have. I will be able to show photos of these as I progress.
I've been asked by some of my students if I could organise a sketching workshop that will be on going. I decided to form a sketchbook group meeting on a weekday afternoon or a Saturday afternoon once a month, the idea has been so popular that I'm now going to hold a Saturday and a Wednesday group with the possibility of an evening group too. What a wonderful bunch of students I have, so supportive.


This was the photo from a recipe book that inspired this page. I often use the designs from crockery as inspiration, changing it to my style.


The total page.


This necklace is now in my Etsy shop


I had a wonderful group of students last Saturday attend my Gelatine Printing workshop. They produced some  great prints on fabric and paper. 


Heads down and concentrating.







Some of their work.

Lovely necklace and I adore the adapted crockery pattern. What a fantastic idea. And gelatin printing! How I would like to do some of this again. Spring is starting (slowly) here. Does that mean it is fall down/over there?

I don't know where to start, it is a visual feast. The gelatine prints look fantastic and the sketching workshops sound great too. I think I need to take a class with you!
