Workshop in Tasmania

The weekends design workshop on diamond and ellipses was held at the Moonah art center. This mosaic was commission in the 1990's for the re-opening of the center. They invited Little Hoot along for a ride.

Here is Andrea shopping for fire polish, when I interrupted for a photo op. You can see Helen on the left and Allysa looking on waiting for their turn in the bin.

Here is a better shot of Alyssa with a beautiful rendition of a Laura McCabe design around her neck and Maureen in the background who was busy concentrating on her beading.

Andrea was doing a pendant for her Mom, who loves bright colors. She was experimenting with some right angle weave chain for a necklace, and we decided that the bronze base added a lot of depth and made the chain come alive.

Maureen has been beading for around a year, but the mathematician in her must really help because she was a really quick study. She brought in this opalescent stone to set as her center. She was approaching complete as we finished up the day on Sunday.

I'll see if I can get a picture of Jane's piece before I fly off for Melbourne's quite lovely, all purple and blue zircon ab2x, and we know how I feel about ab2x!
