METAL ETCHING WITH JENNY CROSSLEY
Our tutor for the long weekend Art Retreat was the gorgeous Jenny Crossley. Her classes were wonderful and we had such a fun weekend with her at Yarramalong. There was a very creative class on Saturday doing a fabbo book, but unfortunately due to my ongoing sight issues, I wasn't able to take on this project which did take 10+ hours to complete. BUT I did do both of the etching/pendant classes which were just gorgeous and I can definitely see that I will include this type of creativity in my future.....weeeeeelllll perhaps you might say that one could become addicted.
Thanks to Jenny, Ruth Spitzer and Margaret Weiss for all the wonderful organisation and inspiration over the weekend, also to Ruth for a great class on Saturday night and to Martina for the great Polished Pigments demonstration with which we all had fun and great results....I think there may have been a few orders placed for them after the weekend. To all of the girls who attended, what a great weekend full of comaraderie and artistic accomplishment. Above are two of the pendants which we made on the weekend.
