Successful Birdfeeder Workshop

Five brave students faced an intensive weekend of making on 11th and 12th March. From beginner to experienced, there were plenty of challenges in this two-day workshop, with lots of techniques covered (borders, French randing, waling, chasing, binding), and a difficult shape to master with some very fiddly gaps to weave between. They all did fantastically well and produced some very pleasing work. Well done all!

In process photos below, hopefully with some in-situ finished work shots to follow:

Its been a productive month since France… beginning my ‘6 of each’ homework for AC (first pea-picker and peck pictured); two encouraging weeks at open studios; enjoying making hurdles in sunshine and rain; practicing underfoot walk-around slewed bottoms; recycling hazel and willow excess into Forest School projects; seeing what my bike basket looks like on Tanya’s bike. Generally feeling excited and motivated by it all. Oh and some new commissions to work on over the summer. Jolly good.
