Just back from a fab weekend on the East coast. Had lunch with a new chum to discuss a project in the pipeline that might results in meeting lots more new like minded arty chums. Then caught up with my bestest East coast buddies and together we visited the studios of yet another new chum who is a talented basket maker and bookbinder. She has a glorious, custom made, dedicated studio space which we all envy greatly. We stroked her string collection and fondled her hand made paper before swooping in on an unexpected exhibition opening then swooping off to dinner.
Today I was facilitating a junk jewellery session for a lovely group of people. The group included one brave gentleman who valiantly put up with the slings and arrows of outrageous womanhood giving in return as good as he got. Great day, smashing fun. Here is some of the resulting jewellery.
