Metal Workshop with Lin Brown

I will warn you now, this is extremely picture heavy, with not many words!!!

Lin & Lin covering a canvas with patterned papers.

Still covering the canvas.

Meg and her new turtle toy.

Meg playing with her toy, which at this point still had both eyes!!

And she quickly found the squeaker.

We were playing with different metal tools and making a sampler.

And these are the samplers.

And here is Meg again, asking very nicely for her toy.

A bit of thinking was required next, oh what to put on the lettered background panels.

More brain power required, Helen is deep in thought.

Meg was back for another play with now the one eyed turtle.

Everyone back on the case.

Then it was time for tea and cake. It's Helen's birthday next week, so we celebrated it early.

Lin supplied the candles and we all had a piece of cake.

Anyway, cake over and back to it.

The metal work in progress.

Filled the deep grooves with grunge paste.

More of the same.

And finishing off the last few bit before we left for the day to meet back at the pub later.

In the pub waiting for a table, Lesley & Em.

Helen, and Jo met us there. It was fabulous to see her again. Thanks for coming Jo.

Lin in the pub, pondering.

And then Lin joined us in the wait.

And finally we got a table, ordered and got our food.

And then we were all stuffed, but there was room for pudding for some.

We are back again tomorrow to progress with our makes.
