Yesterday saw day 2 of our sinamay masterclass with Bridget Bailey. No doubt we are all waking up this morning with sore thumbs but a sense of achievement and a desire to carry on playing with our new found skills in dyeing, stiffening, and rolling the most perfect sinamay shapes.
Bridget was so generous with her knowledge and made us all feel very at home with the skills and materials. We look forward to welcoming her back in the not too distant future!
We were hosted by The Lygon Arms in Chipping Campden and we could not have been better cared for! The venue was a fabulous setting and the food amazing! Thank you to all the staff there for taking such good care of us - we look forward to coming back in October for our next workshop!
This was the first of many workshops to come as part of the new venture, ‘The Cotswolds School of Arts and Crafts’. This joint collaboration between Louise Pocock, (my mentor, friend, amazing artisan hat maker and occasional cake bully!) and me hopes to bring many fabulous tutors to the stunning area of the Cotswolds so that people can enjoy quality tuition and expertise at a luxury venue in a beautiful setting.
We can take a few days now to rest those thumbs and reflect on a great couple of days before revving up the planning for October where we welcome Israeli designer/milliner Maor Zabar.
So a final thank you to all the ladies that formed a lovely group, friends old and new! Now....who’s up for a hand massage???!!!
