Clay Mini Beasts

Tuesday and Wednesday, this week, I am doing a school residency at St Catherine's looking at Mini beasts and their habitats in the school  grounds, but this time in Clay ,I am actually working with real clay for a change, so it will be good to decorate them and get them glazed and fired so that they last

Sunshine Workshop

Another beautiful day, just perfect for doing sun printing during a Silk painting workshop - Hydrangea's flowers and leave's print really well. 

Cycle race

The tour of Britain is taking place today - if you hadn't heard , unfortunately it passes through Poundsgate so making it difficult to visit Hannaford Workshop - but don't give up I am sure by this afternoon it will be okay again!

Next Silk Workshop

The 15 September workshop is now full, maybe they missed me over the summer?  or is it the lunches they missed?
