First Metalwork Weekend Ever.....Great Time!

Please scroll down and view all the pieces that Sandi made during the first of my "summer" workshops. 
The weather did not co-operate (although it was mild and not too windy) but we were undaunted,
as artists must adapt to circumstance with stamina,  heart,  and desire!  Just think of the plein aire painters, 
producing beautiful foggy views of London,  and drippy rainy gardens in France.  Sandi stuck it out with great aplomb and a super attitude, and made so many beautiful pieces, and has lots of gorgeous textures, patinas,  and components for so many more!   What an open,  eager,  and delightful student she was,  and now I look towards June 19-20 and my next workshop with 4 students (full)....I have also learned a lot about what can and cannot be covered in just 3 days!   Now I am weary..........and I know she is too.  But it is a happy weary!  If you are interested in the next workshop,  it will be Sat-Sun,  July 3-4.  I can take 2 more students.

Beautiful pieces, Jill. A testament to an excellent instructor. I know you must be proud of your students. Riki will soon be on her way up North. I know the two of you will have a wonderful reunion and summer. Hoping we can meet one of these fine days, Jill.
Take care
