A few weeks ago I ran a weekend workshop with my lovely friend ceramicist and jeweller Kriket Broadhurst. the Saturday was all about drawing and painting. We braved the elements at a local spot called Penmon point and got creative for the morning outdoors. Back when we planned the course, we thought the weather would be nice enough o enjoy a picnic lunch outdoors but oh no, British weather won and we enjoyed our picnic in our campers. That was half the fun, both Kriket and I have blue VW campers so we drove from place to place in those much to the delight of our ladies (and gent). In the afternoon we relocated to our local boatyard in Beaumaris. What inspiration!!!! I was in my element, I took about 300 photos so believe it or not I have spared you. I just had to share with you. The peeling paint and faded colours on the boats and sheds had me squealing inside with delight. The saddest thing is they are going to ripping this old boatyard apart soon and building brand spanking new sheds..........sacrilege. But guess who will be first in line for the lovely planks of wood and treasures.
A great day was had by all, although we were all ready for a nice hot bath by the end of the day we had been blown to bits and drunk n fresh air. some amazing work was produced in preparation for the next day where we were transferring imagery onto tiles and bowls. I'll be sharing those photos on Monday (probably not quite as many as all these y)
We will definitely be running this course again before the Summer as it was booked up within days and I have a few people waiting for the next dates, I'm looking forward to it.....
Happy weekend all xx
