And here they are!

As you can see there are some really beautiful pieces. The good news is also that your all of your second 3 inch squares are fab too, although I haven’t photographed them.

Please feel very free to leave comments on your own work and that of others’. Also we would love to see you again on a course and remember we do gift vouchers just in case anyone is stuck for a present for you.

We are currently in the process of making a piece of community art which we will put up on this blog shortly. The work is being made in a beeswax medium rather than glass. Beeswax is actually translucent when used in this way and is a very tactile material. If you have time to pop back here and look in 2 weeks time, and even better leave some feedback, I would be really grateful as this work is part of my MA around audience reactions to my work. Thank you again for an enjoyable day on Saturday.

The final pieces

These were a total joy to edit. I love that there are pieces with colour, some with metals (one of my personal favourite materials), representational and abstract work, all within one group. This is the most diverse work I have seen come from a course and I think you will all be a huge inspiration to future and prospective students. We would live to see you again – we run intermediate courses and jewellery making with coloured glass. Thank you for such a creative and fun day.

Lyn, thank you for your glowing comments, would you post them on our facebook wall if you get a chance? Also thank you to Mark for your kind posting too.

Intermediate pictures looking great

We had a good day on Saturday with lots of use of the enamel pens, extra layers of glass and a go at creating relief effects. As well as our lovely intermediate returners we were joined by Alan, who turned out to be a dab hand at cutting glass and got the hang of a huge array of different materials in record time. The results speak for themselves so something to look forward to in the post or on collection. This course is still evolving to fit the needs of our students, at some point we may make it a 2 day course and then imagine how good the work would be.

If any of you would like to post a comment on how you found the day or on your work or a compliment about another student’s work please do so below. Fern’s picture (number 3) of Pacman was really hard to create (no idea how you and Paula made the lines so straight) but it is a real winner, I hope we see you all again soon. Sue and Vince
