Small Panel Workshop Success

Yesterday I held another one day small panel workshop at my studio.  The two ladies were great friends & we had lots of laughter & creative fun! 
They both decided to take their inspiration from my own work incorporating leaf motifs.  So out came the reference books for design ideas before cutting the shapes (with a little saw piercing help from me!) from copper & brass.

Texture was applied with hammers & punches before soldering the pieces together.  We joined the panel sections together with jump rings & added a decorative scroll at the top to hang the pieces up.

 The final pieces were very successful & when dry a lacquer can be applied to further highlight the colour contrasts.

I do not have any more workshops booked for the next few weeks as I'm busy with shows (The Design Fair, Malvern Autumn Show & Autumn in St Ives Exhibition) but can take booking from mid October onwards...might be an idea for a Christmas present???  Contact me for more information.
