Day Two of the Experimental Sculptural Forms…..

Day two of the Experimental Sculptural Forms Workshop with Mandy Nash and we had a few new faces join us.  Those of us doing the two days got straight on with our projects while Mandy talked through the process with the newbies.

A hive of activity!

Several ladies completely finished their fish by the end of the day while I seemed to work flat-out on my vessel but still didn’t quite get done.

Georgina chose to take her vessel home to finish as she, and Tracy, were keen to use the workshop time to get started on another piece of work which the tutor demonstrated on the Sunday.  Mandy hasn’t named this piece but all three of us were excited to see how it was made and it’s something I am intending to have a go at next week.

After getting it home and giving it a bit more pummelling I was really pleased with how my piece worked out.

Mandy Nash is a wonderful tutor and this has to be one of the most interesting workshops I’ve been on.   The venue was good, the company was great and hopefully I will meet up with some of you again at future workshops.   Oh, and when you do get your vessel and “un-named thingy’s” finished Georgina & Tracy, send me images and I will post them here!

    1. Ha, ha, I think I’m becoming the Henry Ford of the felting fraternity……you can have any colour as long as it’s grey and yellow! I just love that combination.
