Treasure Chest....

I've been neglecting Etsy lately - well, actually I've listed two new things this week, but other than that, and clicking the like a few times, I've not done much else.  Thankfully for me, my team mates on Frit Happens and Craft Pimp street teams are, as always, working hard making some lovely treasuries - here's a few I like (and that like me!)

Gorgeous colours in the treasury by Josephine Wadman

As always, Lyne Davy, Nemeton created this lovely treasury....

I love colour themed treasuries:

And finally, I had to include this one, I thought it was stunning

Workshop Dates

I've added some NEW WORKSHOP DETAILS to my website, so if you can't make it to the Long Eaton Art Room workshop, why not book yourself a taster session down at Shed 2 Studios?

New Workshop Date....

Just a quick post.... I sometimes do glass fusing workshops at Long Eaton Art Room - especially  this time of year when it's very cold down at the studio!  

We're planning one at the beginning of February, with a Valentine theme, so why not get yourself booked in to make a unique gift for someone special (and that includes yourself!)

Heath Robinson Photo Set Up - a couple of results

Last time I did a major photo session, the largest bowl I had made was 20cm square.... so it sat quite happily on a piece of A1 paper as the back drop.... since then, I've been making larger bowls, and A1 was no longer big enough.

Unfortunately, in Ilkeston, we're not flush with art shops, so I doubted very much that I would find somewhere nearby to buy a sheet of A0 from.... then Rachel had a flash of inspiration, use a roller blind that was sitting in the office.... brill!  Well, except it was not quite the right colour for some of my glass.... but a quick nip out and I bought a new off white blind, which I promptly took to bits, pinned the wall, et voila.... infinity backdrop!

Here's some of the photos I took.....
